Beautiful view of the town!

We took the elevator but you can take the stairs if you have the energy. You can either drive or walk from downtown. The view is stunning. Nice gift shop.

Family had a great time hiking the mountain. About a 30 minute push! Nice view from top and there is a stop to overview city. Do not have to pay $7 dollars for tower view. There are white spots on trees along the way to advise hikers you are in the right track; and red spots on trees that advise... More

Kids were dying to go up, so Grandma took us all. It was a great view! The gift shop below was packed full of souvenirs, almost too packed but we managed to buy several items anyway. A must see if even only one time.

The road up is very twisty and steep, but one-way so you don't have to worry about oncoming traffic. The Observation Tower is a good deal. 216' up and you can see for miles. Maybe not a great idea for those with a fear of heights, but I managed mine and went up.

Hot Springs Mountain is close to Hot Springs and easy to tour. You hike the trails or keep to the roads to see its wonderful nature and beautiful views. Make sure you pack plenty of water and a good camera.

I have been fortunate to hike most of the trails of the mountain over the years and I never tire of the experience. This area of Hot Springs is just beautiful and when you return all sore from hiking, you soak in the baths. Not bad, but they do need to do a bit of maintenance on the trail in... More

This was one my most anticipated sites, but we were extremely disappointed. The tower itself had damage to the ceiling tiles, which was understandable after a recent storm. But it was not acceptable that several of the damaged tiles were scattered all around the floor. The owner or maintenance crew should have taken time to inspect the damage and check... More

We hiked to the top of the mountain and then went up in the observation tower. It was just the perfect distance and great views of the town.

The views are awesome. I love going up this mountain there is a place you can take pictures when you get on top of the mountain. On a clear day you can see for miles.

This place was a great little hideaway to watch the fireworks in the area without the crowd. We definitely plan on visiting again.
