Restore your nature – ride a bike, walk your dog, take a run or go golf car
t trekking on the 30+ miles of beautiful trails in Hot Springs Village.
In addition to the Hot Springs Village nature trails, both the Ouachita National Forest and Hot Springs National Park offer an abundance of paths perfect for hiking and mountain biking. In fact, Hot Springs has one of the two IMBA epic trails found in Arkansas – the Womble Epic (the International Mountain Bicycling Association uses the Epic® designation to identify the best mountain biking trails in the region).
Cycling in Arkansas:
Whether on the Village nature trails or on Arkansas’ mountain trails and secluded scenic roads, cycling is one of the best ways to get outdoors and see the beauty of the state. Explore routes of varying degrees and difficulty like the challenging hills of the Epic Womble Trail, Cedar Glades Mountain Bike Park in Hot Springs, or simply pedal across Arkansas on rural roads that take you from one historic town to the next.
As a testament to the state’s commitment to biking, a $9.2 million pedestrian-bicycle bridge has just been completed in Little Rock – the second longest bridge of its type built in the U.S. It links the 14 miles of the Arkansas River Trail that runs along the north and south banks of the Arkansas River.
Coronado Fitness Center::
Situated on the shores of Lake Coronado, the Fitness Center is a full workout facility with a large fitness room, three-lane walking track, exercise classroom, a 25-meter heated indoor pool, whirlpool, steam room, sauna and massage therapy. In addition to the men’s and women’s locker rooms, two family dressing/shower rooms are available.
Work out on the treadmills, bikes, elliptical machines and steppers while watching television or enjoying a view of Lake Coronado. Make an appointment with a personal trainer who will work with you to customize a fitness program or join a yoga, zumba, spin, Pilates, water aerobics or triathlon training class.

GPS coordinates for the Village and state can be viewed online at Geocaching.com.

A major feature of the memorial is the “Walk of Honor” which contains over 3600 bricks with Veterans’ names and service on them. All branches of the services are represented: Army, Air Force, Navy, Marines and Coast Guard. HSV Veterans have a support network with organizations like American Legion Post 123, VFW Post 10483 and MOAA (Military Officers Association of America).
