Long drive and narrow roads, and be prepared as we didn’t have phone service for GPS on our way down. Somehow we got turned around and drove one way up and another way down, and thought we were lost. The road did take us back down to the highway however. Highly recommended for the not so strenuous hike.

It was really pretty to see but kind of difficult to get there. The roads were extremely narrow and not paved.

Don't be put off by the road in. It's a gravel road with lots of pot holes and bumps. It's part of the experience. Once at the Max Patch parking area, trails are well marked and easy to navigate. Once at the top, you have a 360 degree view which is just awe inspiring. There are no facilities so take water, and maybe a blanket to sit on for a picnic. Good hike for all levels and great for families.

This is a great hike. Two choices of difficulty. The view from the summit is stunning. We saw a few campsites and even a couple or true mountain bikes. Early morning is best for July!

This is a must if you are in the Hot Springs area. This massive bald has a great history as well as amazing views. There are at least 4 ways to get there so check a map first. There are signs though.

Está bien hermosa esta montaña, si vienen a Hot Springs deben venir a ver esta montaña. Hay muchas maneras de llegar uno puede consultar el mapa y nada más seguir los letreros.
