Whittington Trail is approximately 1.2 miles in length. Gravel trails here are popular with joggers and walkers. This area was created in the 1800’s as a formal landscaped park. In the 1930’s it was the scene of summer concerts, (still an occasional site), and horseback riding. Today, it serves as a peaceful getaway from the hustle and bustle of downtown Hot Springs.
