Hot Springs Mountain Tower is a 65.8 metre (216-foot) high observation tower built of lattice steel on Hot Springs Mountain at Hot Springs, Arkansas, USA. Construction began in 1982, and the structure was officially opened to the public on June 3, 1983.The tower is the third to be built on the mountain. In the nineteenth century, a 75-foot wooden observatory was constructed on the site. This tower was later struck by lightning and burned to the ground. In 1906, the wireless telegraph tower from the 1904 Louisiana Purchase Exposition was relocated to the mountain and renamed the Rix Tower; it stood for there 69 years, finally being torn down in 1975 due to instability.

  • The drive up the mountain was safe and secure. The views the entire time are the best. I loved that they have this path to drive on straight to the top.  more »
  • Even as a result of the cold weather that we get is a great ride. The first trial is not an ascent, a beautiful walk until you reach the Tower of Hot Springs.
