Take in a sweeping view of Hot Springs National Park and the Ouachita Mountains from the top of Hot Springs Mountain Tower. Give yourself a workout by climbing the steps of this 66 m (216 ft) tower, or opt for the more direct, less strenuous route via elevator.

  • It does cost $8 to go up the tower. There are both elevators and stairs however it’s about 5 stories high. The elevator is open on one side to watch as you travel. The views are very beautiful up top ...  more »
  • We drove up the mountain and parked at the top. There was a beautiful sunset view but we arrived too late to take the elevator to the top of the tower. They close at 8:00. There is a gift shop inside ...  more »

  • Love seeing Hot Springs from above and afar. Seeing the scope and looking at the history of the city on a micro scale is a fun addition to the overall experience of a visit to Hot Springs. Plus, the drive up is nice and there are trails below to explore. Go up to the tower and you'll be glad you did.
  • The tower had a very nice view of Hot Springs and the surrounding National Forest. Most people take the elevator to the top which has an enclosed viewing area or a set of steps to the top open observation area. There is also an outside set of enclosed stairs to the top which is the best way go. There is also the obligatory gift shop on the premises. The down side is that the facility could have been cleaner and better maintained.
