Hot Springs National Park: Hot Springs, AR Professional Review and Guide
"A 5-mile drive in Hot Springs National Park with scenic views, historic sites, interesting rock outcrops, and hot springs. Hot Springs National Park is located in the middle of a series of mountains called the Zig-Zag Mountains. These long, linear mountains, spaced from 1 to 3 miles apart, are the result of giant folds produced during the mountain building of the entire region. The angle of these tilted layers of bedrock and the type of rock itself account for the unique occurrence of hot springs in this area. Although hot springs are found in a few locations in the Appalachian Mountains and are much more common in the West in places such as Yellowstone, in the Midwest they occur only at Hot Springs, Arkansas.
Special attractions: Hot Springs, Bathhouse Row, Hot Springs Mountain Drive, West Mountain Drive, Hot Springs Mountain Tower, and National Park Aquarium; scenic views, hiking, camping, and hot springs bathing."
