This trail crosses the crests of three mountains and goes through the city streets of Hot Springs. The trail follows the ridge of West Mountain, past the summit of Music Mountain, the highest point in the Zigzag Mountain Range. The U-shaped trail wraps around to the northeast of Hot Springs National Park. The tops of these mountains are folded layers of novaculite and sandstone. Flowering trees such as redbud and dogwood are common in this oak, hickory, and shortleaf pine forest.
