  • This hike is a great workout; scenic; enjoyable; relaxing and a challenge. Parking can be a little difficult and the exit is not marked well (especially with the construction, it is easy to miss...and...  more »
  • This is a bit more of a real hike and we love that! We like a bit of a challenge, it makes it so much more fun! This is not one we would be able to bring our small dogs to though, and may not be great...  more »
  • We did this hike in May with appx. 76 °F and it was almost too hot. Getting down is pretty easy, but you must be aware that it includes some climbing with ropes and you partially walk in the water. Af...  more »

  • Definitely not for the amateur hiker. Be sure to bring plenty of water, and do not underestimate the difficulty of the climbs. Do not attempt this hike during the summer months... it goes from difficult to dangerous. As with any strenuous hike, be sure to let someone know where you are and never hike alone.
  • This is a very hard hike but I felt extremely adventurous scaling boulders and hoisting myself up by ropes. It was rewarding to soak in a natural (brain amoeba infested) hot springs. What a hike and what an adventure! Go! (Not alone)
  • Awesome trail, a little hard but worth it. Don't go at sunset because the Colorado river rises, I think they open the flood gates at the dam or something. Go early it gets so busy people camp on the trail at night to get their own spring in the morning
  • One of my absolute favorite hikes! It is a little technical with ropes and climbing, but multiple hot springs and a river at the end! What's not to love about that?! Go prepared to get wet and do some climbing. This hike is closed from May to October due to the heat.
  • Intense hike. Theres like 6 ropes to help you down difficult parts, but deffinatly still doable. The river and hot springs at the end are worth it
