We attempted this hike last week. Leaving at noon was not nearly enough time as we made it within ~ 10 minutes of the pools, but by that time it was already 3:30. With the road closed it adds at least 4 miles each way...More

We hiked fifth water springs on July. Its a good hike. When we reached to the hot springs it was 9 pm and totally crowded. it smells like rotten eggs (may be due to high sulphur content). Other than that it was amazing.

Round trip this hike is just under 6 miles. So I would say bring plenty of water. Others have said it takes less than an hour to get to the springs, we found this not to be the case. We did have 4 adults and...More

This trail is definitely off the beaten path, but worth the effort if you are in or near Salt Lake City or Provo! The trail is an out and back with much of the trail canopied by natural vegetation. At the top of the 2.5...More

In dry conditions, easy to moderate hike. Two sets of waterfalls. Plenty of hot, warm and cold pools to enjoy. Path is easy for the most part but rocky and the are a few tricky parts.

During the Winter, the gate is closed adding about 3.5 miles before you reach the actual trail head. We arrived around 11:30 and left around 6:30, only spending about 30 minutes at the hot springs. The trail is icy, so I would recommend wearing boots...More

Wow! So beautiful! It's an easy, beautiful drive to the car park, which has a bathroom. Then it's an easy 2.5 mile walk along the river, steadily uphill the whole way, and along a nice smooth trail. Then, some amazingly warm pools at the bottom...More

The trail itself is average because it is not very scenic. It is a dusty wooded trail that leads to some awesome natural hot spring (which is why I rated overall Very Good) . It is easy for families (children) to get to the hot...More
