Hot Springs Mountain Tower

Elevate yourself 1,256 feet above sea level, overlooking 140 miles of beautiful Arkansas countryside, including Hot Springs National Park and the Ouachita Mountains. Located atop Hot Springs Mountain.

ince 1877, Hot Springs Mountain Tower has been a Hot Springs landmark. Enoch Woolman erected the original 75-foot observatory. When lightning and fire destroyed the structure, a second tower was built. The 165-foot steel structure, later named the Rix Tower, stood for over 60 years. Following years of coordinated efforts between the community and the National Park Service, the new Hot Springs Mountain Tower opened to the public in 1983. This 216-foot superstructure affords a breathtaking panorama-encompassing 140 miles- of beautiful Hot Springs, the Ouachita Mountains and the surrounding Diamond Lakes area. It’s a great way to start off or end a day of sightseeing in beautiful Hot Springs National Park, Arkansas.
