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

We arrived at the parking lot (Diamond Fork road was still open) at about 11:00 AM and got the last space. Relatively easy hike in but there were several icy spots on the trail as should be expected in late November. The springs were crowded...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

This hike was great! Get there early! We got to the parking lot at 8:15 am and barely got a spot. The notes on the sign at the bottom is helpful since the sign says Three Fork Trail and doesn't talk about the hot springs....More

It is a beautiful hike to Fifth Water Hot Springs, it is an easy 2.5 mile hike to the springs. Bring water shoes, the rocks are sharp.

After our Moab trip we made our way home hitting a hot springs each day! This was the first and truly the best one. The walk up is a constant gradual uphill for 2.5 miles, nothing difficult. Coming back is a breeze. Once there, there...More

Very easy to find. Google maps will get you to the parking lot and it shows the trail to the springs.
