Owner description: Great views can be had from the observation tower atop this mountain.

Very inexpensive way to see for miles. The view alone is worth the small fee to go atop the tower. The staff inside the gift shop were all friendly and knowledgeable. Definitely recommend for anyone who appreciates natural scenery and beauty.

the clerk inside although was helpful, explained as best she could about the walking trails. If u decide to walk the trails, leave youre car at the bottom, don't drive up and walk down, after all you have to walk back up to get the car!

A must for every traveler, about a 2 hr drive. but worth the drive and the experience... the temperature is quite cool in the mountains so the hot springs is very relaxing

If you want to see the whole area called Hot Springs at one time this is a must see. The drive up is slow and winding but nice. The views from the tower are great. On the trips up and down we saw a total of 4 deer near the side of the road, so take it easy and you may just see one too!

After driving through the historic district and feeling a little rushed the night before, we decided to make the beautiful, leisurely and winding drive to the top for some perspective. With a fee that might seem a little high for time spent, the 5 of us rode the elevator up to the enclosed level, as the stairs were being painted, and we enjoyed the great panoramic views, with the chronological history. Three of us went to the next level, with safe, chest high and above railing and a fresh, cool breeze and a unique view of the town and surrounding area lakes. From there, we made the short drive to the beginning of the series of trails (available on the National Parks site), and we strolled a climb through some well kept pathways, with some mild labor. (Would recommend water and snacks taken, as the Tower store was a little limited.) Great overall views of what Hot Springs offers beyond the bathhouses!
