Great for the family. Easygoing ride on nice paved path.
First let me say the City of Hot Springs has done a beautiful job with this trail. It is paved, well maintained the sculptures are beautiful, the crossings well marked. The only down side for me was the number if homeless that seem to have made this thier own. From using the bushes as a bathroom to bathing in the brook and off course the one guy ranting to himself about something only he fully understood. That's packing a lot of human drama into a short ride. Maybe we experienced an unusual day or maybe being from a less urban area we are more sensitive. On a brighter note they were all harmless.
The city of hot springs has worked hard to make this a wonderful Trail. Public art, babbling brook, and lots of shade. Can’t wait to return to an expanded trail. Really Too short for bikes now, but the staff at the visitors center promised ....soon. Will hold them to the promise when I return.
Several street crossings, but drivers were very respectful and stopped to let us pass as soon as they saw us. Safe, clean, well maintained.
At its present stage of development, the Hot Springs Greenway Trail, at just 2.25 miles [there are plans to extend it to 4.2], is relatively short for a bike ride. But then, it is a multi-purpose trail within the city limits, and as such provides a fantastic opportunity for exercise. It closely follows and frequently crosses the Hot Springs Creek. Being within the city limits, it quite a few times crosses (busy) streets, but as the crossings are well marked, that is never a problem.
What we liked ever so much besides the sculptures at the beginning of the trail and the tree-carvings at Hollywood Park, was the fact that the surface of the trail was very smooth asphalt throughout, and that it was perfectly maintained. Add to this the fact that, even on such a short trail, there were more than one restrooms and water faucets, and you get – as said before – the perfect multi-purpose urban trail. Kudos to the City of Hot Springs for providing such a trail.
Nice trail, weather was uncommonly warm so there were a lot of people out. First off there are more water stops than was listed, we saw 3 but they were turned off understandably to keep them from freezing as it was January. True there is only one restroom facility but how many do you need in such a short trail.
I would make it closer to 2.5 miles as it doesn't stop at Adams but turns left and goes back and runs along the creek behind the waste treatment before coming back up to where Seneca becomes Adams.
There is a crossing button Southbound when crossing Grand St. but I failed to see one coming back from the other direction. Just be careful here as it's a 4 lane crossing.
Could use more public bathrooms, only have the one at Hollywood park. Also that is the only location for water. But you can continue thru downtown to Whittington park, circle it and back and add some miles. One word of warning use all of your bike lane in downtown, because some cars don't know there is a law in Arkansas to give a 3 ft. wide berth!
