If you need a great place to cool your feet after hiking Battle Mountain, go to Chautauqua Park, just a couple miles away. It's a beautiful place that is relatively unknown, except to locals. The Fall River, fed by numerous thermal springs, provides 87-degree water year around. Many Hot Springs residents love to wade in the shallow river, or just sit and soak their feet in the mildly warm mineral water. Chautauqua Park is on Road 188, which is part of North River Road by Evans Plunge in Hot Springs.
