Location: This is one of the few flat and easy walking trails in hilly Hot Springs National Park. The trailhead is not quite a half mile west of the intersection of Central and Park avenues.
GPS: 34.516475, -93.061637 Length: The gravel path is a 1.2 mile loop. Main attractions: The tranquil green space is all that’s left of a once bustling historic park with tennis courts, concert space, horseback riding, rowing lakes and a ballfield. It still makes for a lovely tree-shaded walk around
fully channeled Whittington Creek. Hazards: None.
Dog, bike, tyke friendly? Dogs and small fry will love it, but gravel isn’t too friendly for some bikes. Video: ArkansasOnline. com/happytrails
Rating (out of five):
Whittington Trail offers a calm, shady place to walk as it winds its way through the park.
