The trail head is an easy parking lot, well maintained. It serves at the head for both the Liberty Bell Trail and the Arizona Hot Springs (these fork at a point - there's a map in the parking lot). Washes can be frustrating to follow, however this one is easy and clearly marked by happy blue arrows. The trail head is an easy parking lot, well maintained. It serves at the head for both the Liberty Bell Trail and the Arizona Hot Springs (these fork at a point - there's a map in the parking lot). Washes can be frustrating to follow, however this one tends to stay inside a narrow canyon with vertical cliffs, therefore giving you few alternatives. Also, it is clearly marked with happy blue arrows. Once you reach the river, make a left. You'll soon find another arrow. Follow it (along with the other markers) to the springs. It'll be obvious when you come across a small luke-warm springs.

I've done this hike more times than I can count! :) It is a great trail that provides some nice views of the Colorado River. The hot springs are the best part however! Just be sure, if you have children with you, that you go through the hot springs area first. I've encountered people getting cozy in them before...awkward! Hike fits it's moderate description. Definitely recommend this hike for fall, winter, and spring. I've done this twice in the summer, once when I'm sure it had to be around 120° F, and it was intense! You can refill your bottles in the Colorado, though I'd recommend using a water purifier or drops to be safe. Happy trails! :)

Awesome hike... be prepared to get wet... you must go through the hot springs to get to the river..

Love this hike... a little difficult connecting the hot springs trail to this trail... worth it. Again, expect to get wet if you are doing the loop
