Fun quick little hike, definitely recommended spikes or poles, both would be great but I didn’t have either and was fine.

Hiked this today with my 10 y/o on snowshoes. It was pristine and beautiful. We blazed half the trail in 15-18” of fresh powder. Once we dropped back in we didn’t hear the snowmobiles out at the main parking. Definitely do this again to see it in the summer. Loved.

This is a must-see! Bring: towels, a bag for wet clothes, spikes for shoes, dry socks and underwear/bra to change into. Wear: your bathing under your clothes and hiking boots!

The actual road to the trailhead is gated off due to snow. The hike ends up being about 3.8 miles there and 3.8 back. We started at 3 in the afternoon and made it to the springs by 4:30 (about 1.5 hours hike) hopped in the springs for a bit and made our way back in the dark.

The springs have several different pools with varying temperatures. We were in the one closest to the little water fall at the end of the trail and it felt like it was a hundred degrees! We loved it and so glad we had a chance to experience this place.

This trail is super snowy currently and some places are slick and muddy. I highly recommend good hiking boots with plenty of traction. We stopped by Walmart and picked up towels and those over-the-shoe spikes and they really helped. The hike back in the dark was really icy in some spots (thank goodness we packed a headlamp). A few people tagged along with us on the way back and they were in running shoes and slipped and fell down several times.

Great hike. I did a Google Earth Trail on Saturday here. You can do a virtual like walk of the trail and into the cave at www.shaunasadventures.com or on Google Earth. We had on spikes/ Crampons and made it to the cave fine. Headed up a little before 9, and there was not too many crowds, but as we headed down there was a huge group heading up. Most people heading up had sleds. I wish I would have asked them where they were heading to sled. I am thinking they were going to take the V shaped trail marked on my blog to the North Fork road and then sled down it. Definitely would have been fun sled ride down.

The trail was snow packed and beautiful! It was easily doable without spikes or snowshoes! The gate was closed 1.5 miles out from the trailhead, but was a beautiful hike! Prepare yourself to have a towel and dry clothes when you get out of the springs!

easy hike, good views. Dont try and get a picture by the falls unless you want to walk back with freezing feet. Ha!

Beautiful, easy hike. Cool ice cave. Hiked today (mid-January) with hiking/snow boots and we were just fine.

great hike! we didn't go up the last portion but it was so much fun anyway. snow was packed in but we had spikes and poles. definately need to go back and go up to the cave!

I hiked this yesterday with a friend. It wasn’t too crowded and the snow was packed down so hiking boots were fine. We didn’t do the very last part to the actual falls because it was too steep and slippery. Other people were doing it though.

Great place to hike. what some people may not know, if you hike another half mile or so, you will run into another, HUGE HEART ROCK. I will post a pic of it. you will see my daughter in a red shirt.

NOTE: Please keep in mind that the hike becomes a little more difficult, with rocks, log crossings, branches, water streams etc.

Fun to hike with family and friends. A little steep on the way up but overall a chill hike. We were able to access it easy even in the snow because it’s used quite often.

One of my very favorite hikes for kids. Shaded and short, also the area right by the waterfall is shallow enough that my little kids can take their shoes off and walk around while they explore. Water can be chilly though so best on a warm day.

I did this hike in late September. It is a really neat hike through a slot canyon w two waterfalls. This was one of the top three hikes I did in Zion. This hike is definitely worth the time to do. Your feet and legs will get wet. You are hiking in and out if water the entire way, mostly ankle to lower calf deep. A few spots were mid thigh deep. Water is pretty cold, but your in and out of it so it isn’t as noticeable as the Narrows. The ladders at the waterfalls are a bit challenging, but we made it safely. The second ladder is not safe to climb. We stopped at that point. This hike is through a true slot canyon. The scenery is some of the best in Zion. I think. There was a cost of about $8 if I recall correctly. But it was definitely worth the $8 cost. Would definitely do again. The hike is not for little kids though.

Great little
Hike! You have to go up and to the right to find the heart but its beautiful !

Amazing short little hike. It has hard snow pack so no snow shoes necessary. The view at the falls is amazing. Truly a great one for the whole family. And the reward is well worth the work.

Beautiful hike!! We did this hike on Christmas Eve and, at that point, the gate was closed adding an additional 1.5 miles to the trailhead. I would highly recommend yak tracks, spikes, snow shoes or something to help with traction. Most the of the hike is icy and I can’t really imagine doing it without them. The hike itself (with spikes) was relatively easy, only a small elevation gain. Pack a lunch, you burn enough calories that you’ll be hungry at the end. The hot springs are beautiful and so much fun! We wore out suits in under our clothes, brought flip flops, towel, and plastic bags to put our suits in on the way back. Highly recommend this hike!

Great trail and fabulous Petroglyphs

Lovely winter hike. The road and trail were sufficiently packed that snowshoes were not necessary, although they may help some folks. No waterfall visible during the winter, but it was still worth it for a beautiful woodland walk.

We did this hike on Christmas Day and it was beautiful. Very little water, definitely no waterfalls. We went a little beyond the trail and climbed some larger rocks and sat on top for awhile to take it all in. The petroglyphs were a bonus. I would hike this trail again.

Great trail to get used to the altitude, first part is a little difficult for out of staters like myself but even with a few breaks you can reach the reservoir fairly quickly. Great mountains views up top and great views of the city valley on the way down. Great quick Christmas hike!

Did this on the 24th of December. Second time this year I've done this hike. One of my favorite hikes. Water is about 40' this time of year so be prepared for cold feet. Not a good time of year to go to the second waterfall unless you have a wet suit. Beautiful

Very fun hike. We brought our bikes to ride from the gate to trailhead. Our family of 2 adults and 4 kids (ages 8-16) loved it. It was slippery in parts but didn’t require any special equipment besides good hiking shoes. It was a great Christmas Eve family activity!

Amazing, easy, beautiful trail!! So much litter though. Just imagine if everyone took a little responsibility for keeping our public spaces clean. My wife and I picked up as much trash as we could, but there's more out there.

If you’re looking for an easy paved and cut out trail this is for you. You’ll be directed to the waterfall with ease. Now, if you want to go to see the donut shaped rock where the waterfall has cut through, you’ll need to do some climbing. My group scaled the waterfall. Shoes and pants were wet, but to us, it was worth it to feel the icy water and take pictures at the top. We typically do difficult hikes, so adding this climbing factor make it more interesting and worthwhile.

GATE CLOSED! Beautiful trail with almost exactly three additional miles of road walking before the trailhead since the gate is closed. This actually makes it a nice long hike (for our family of four anyway) and adds some beautiful vistas -- red rocks on one side, snowy mountains on the other -- blue skies in between, at least on the walk back for us today. This trail is ICY and very slippery in several spots. I highly recommend spikes. We didn't have them and busted our butts a few times before we just began sitting down and "jeans sledding" instead. (Super fun activity as well, but slowed down the hike a great deal -- and can't be done uphill.) The hot springs, of course, make this trail. Today we stayed in the water for an hour -- hopping pool to pool in one of the lower areas -- and soaked our aching bums a good long time. :-) Bring water, a snack and definitely spikes for your shoes in the winter -- or at least a hiking pole that you can chop up the iciest spots with or cover with mud and leaves. Go and enjoy!

Good trail, the hike up to the trailhead was the biggest workout for me but the scenery was nice and it wasn’t too long
