The Peak Trail is a short but rewarding trail. The trail begins at Tufa Terrace Trail above the Grand Promenade and steeply ascends Hot Springs Mountain to the Hot Springs Mountain Tower. The green boxes along the way are springs water collection boxes. Avoid the path to the right at the first mountain drive crossing; it dead-ends just out of sight at the door of a pump station.

The Peak Trail ends at the tower, but has a short side trail to the pcinic area. Be sure to venture up the tower to enjoy a breath-taking view of the city. There is a short spur path near bottom of the Peak Trail, leading down to the Grand Promenade a few yards north of the place where you started.
