Nice drive up the side of the mountain. Plenty of trails to hike on. There's a park area where you can sit and eat. There's an observation deck below the actual tower. Good view of the whole surrounding area.
Take the road on the west side all the way to the top and enjoy the view. We went to both the east and west sides of the mountain. The sunset on the East side is fabulous and the tower and lookout on the west is incredible. Must see.
The view at the top of the mountain is pretty cool and the view at the top of the mountain tower is as equally nice. I would not say it was breath taking or anything like that, but it was fairly cheap ($15 for 3 people) so it was worth it to me and my family.
It's a really fun drive up a small but steep mountain. There are a lot of switchbacks; so put your car in low gear and have a ball! There are several gorgeous overlooks. Didn't go up the tower (on top of the mountain) this time, but plan on doing that in the future. There are "hot springs" around the corner... 更多
Cara and I came last year and when we drove up and took the elevator up the tower, she said she wanted to hike up next time. So this time we hiked up and took the stairs to the top of the tower, it really was a great hike! Can't wait to do it again next year!
We loved driving up to the park with the windows rolled down, enjoying the view and the fun!! Several times we pulled off and found trails to explore. Many memories made here!!
The drive up is gorgeous along a winding road. There are places to stop and take in the view, picnic tables, grills, and public restrooms. We drove all the way to the mountain tower to see everything from above. It's worth the drive!
The hot springs mountain drive is great. The drive through thick vegetation and water flow is very interesting and great. We had a very nice and pleasant drive. The road is very comfortable to srive though steep. There is a look out and we can see the whole town from the look out. Nice place to take pictures of the... 更多
I like the trails and the lookout tower, but did not like that I could actually see the spring from where the water was coming from.
This was a great drive to Hot Springs Mountain and Lookout...very beautiful. And the information floor was really great to read through!
Being the nation's first National Park, you can see why. We drove to the top enjoying all the views along the way, then to the elevator to the top for amazing views. Be sure and get your senior discount.
