  • Beautiful forest and area to hike. Not a true mountain as in Rockies but a good drive up. Same road up brings you back down in heart of Hot Springs. 
  • Drive or hike up to the middle or top of any of the hot spring mountains and you will love the beauty especially in the fall and spring. It is a great place to visit for history fun and relaxation. 
  • Winding road that allows you to drive up to tower or hike! Lots of trails that wind up and down. Lookout tower at the top
