The Hot Springs National Scenic Trail Proposal

Originally, a long-distance hiking trail from hot spring to hot spring was nothing more than a personal journey, but due to the incredible experiences I had, and the places I saw while hiking it, I became compelled to publish a guidebook so others could enjoy this trail as well, and so that it could be used as a template for an official Hot Springs National Scenic Trail.

"A great challenge with huge rewards."

That's what Drew Reams, the first person to complete a major section of The Hot Springs Trail said after his groundbreaking journey. He went on to say:

"I can easily see this route being the culminating capstone trail of the Quadruple Crown."

Lovers of nature from our nation and abroad would like to see more National Scenic Trails on the ground here in the US. Why not one that honors hot springs? 

But this isn't simply a trail to hot spring areas, it's a journey to hot springs culture.  

Hot springs are a national treasure, one that deserves both visitation and protection. A Hot Springs National Scenic Trail would utilize these areas in a way that promotes community, economy, and recreational tourism for our country, while protecting them for future generations to experience.

Help the American Dream of adventure and discovery stay alive and honor the work that has already been put into the finding, building, and maintaining of our nation's hot springs and the trails that are used to visit them.

Help protect these sacred waters and lands in a way that still leaves them therapeutic and accessible to the people.

Designate The Hot Springs Trail as a National Scenic Trail.

I support The Hot Springs National Scenic Trail Proposal.
