Very hard, very worth it. Don’t bring your dog, it’s too much for them. The steps take about an hour, and then it’s a nice leisurely walk down the Barr trail. Beautiful!

The trail is mostly clear with some icy sections towards the top,my regular trail shoes handled it just fine. We took the bar trail back down since the ice was making me nervous. But if you have crampons/yaktrax then no worries. Wasn’t busy on a Sunday afternoon. We took our sweet time and did it 2.5 round trip. Love the views and workout.

Cost 15 dollars, pretty but not worth it. 500 steps down, 500 steps up nothing else to do...no flowers in the orchid garden were in bloom. In high season with warm weather, tiny swimming area just down from the falls would have been too packed to move. The waterfall is nice, but not spectacular and not for that price.

Checked in at the green lagoon to get passes, ten dollars per person. Had to go around the barb wire fence.
Challenging hike lots of climbing, took us 4h total at a fast pace. It rained the whole time and it became slippery on the way down. Worth the hike but dont expect the view in bad weather.

Hiked 12/8/18 - Conditions were great. a few sections of ice/snow but mostly dry. No traction needed...just expect to be more careful on the small sections that are ice/snow covered. Hiked it with full winter loadout and completed the incline section of the route in 54 minutes. Then we took our time going down the Barr Trail. This is a great workout hike and even better if you add a summit of Rocky Mountain to it!

Came to Glacier at end of the June. Most trails we wanted to do were still closed due to ice/snow. Ranger recommended this one. It ended up being our favorite trail in the park. Panoramic view at top was stunning. Saw a herd of 9ish bighorn sheeps on our way down. It was super windy on the day of our hike. We estimate around 60 mph wind speed. We had to crawl at times. It was still worth the time and effort.

the hike was really lovely! not too strenuous, though there is a hill. I was not so impressed with the spring themselves; two of the eight were out of order and we did a lot of waiting around before deciding to bail on our dip. people who were ahead of us in line had to make trips up and down the site with five gallon buckets to fill their tub. seemed like a lot of work for an experience I was hoping would be relaxing. so we went home dry. maybe better to go on a week day!

A great trail for snowshoeing! The east loop is longer than the west loop. Lots of critter tracks in the snow.

It does need some energy to get there, but worth it!

Love it!

Pleasant walk. Nice neighborhood hike

great moderate hike with super fun swimming holes near the end, fairly easy to follow but at times the trail can be hard to spot,

Gorgeous waterfall! Took the stairs down and back up once ready. Man made straight forward trail - there are about 500 stairs down to the falls (ballpark, or so I was told). No guide needed. It is highly trafficked. When I went there were a lot of people there.

I would not go here again and am so glad I wasn’t alone. We had an experience similar to the lady below. We were in the larger spring across the creek when we seen a guy standing near the hwy taking pictures and jacking off right towards us. We quickly got out to get dressed, grab our things and let the other girls that were there know that he was there during the whole process he “continued”.. it was very uncomfortable only to get back across the creek and up to our car to find a sticky not on my driver side window which said “why’d you stop, I had a perfect view”.. I’m so creeped out by the situation I can’t even imagine how long he’s been doing this and nothings been done about it.

Great views during our December hike, while headed up and down, 360 degrees at the top. My only criticism is too few markings in several locations where trail forks, making AllTrails GPS location checks necessary. Be certain to check your location at the top Bald area, and walk the entire loop indicated on the AllTrails App, including towards the rock-faced area on the Northern side...great views at the edge!

Great hike. Make sure you have good shoes because it will get slippery. Bring plenty of water.

It was brisk, so there weren’t as many people on the trail as expected. Trail was clear, only a tiny bit of snow here and there. We didn’t go into the springs, not what we went for truthfully. Not sure we’d go back. Sad to see some trash at the trailhead and up at the springs as well.

Just went to the hot springs two days ago. Very easy to get to although I recommend using google maps from this site and save the map offline so you can use. We did run out of service and that helped a lot. The road to the trail is bumpy. High clearance is preferred but totally not extremely necessary if you just go super slow. I’ve seen worse. The trail is nicely maintained and the walk was nice. A few icy parts and rocks but nothing even my grandma wouldn’t do. When we got to the base I only noticed two springs. One was mildly warm and the other was comfortably hot. Neither of them piping hot! We were the only ones there for a a good chunk of the time. Some guests were nude so that is something to consider. All in all it was solid and I would recommend it to anyone in the Taos area.

I had intentions to go all the way up this morning but couldn’t brave the storm. Made it to the living room and continued the loop back down. It’s a really steep incline but worth all the accomplished feelings. Beautiful views and snow covered land. Cleats are a must this time of year.

Completed this hike in 5 hours with 1 hour used for exploring the Hoodos. The washout is easy to follow (look for foot prints). The hanging gate entrance requires you to lift a metal wire to open the gate. As of 23Nov18, there were two entrance gates. We didn't really find a true parking lot for 2WD, so we parked before the big dip/washout. Highly recommend hike.

I definitely would not rate this an easy trail..... moderate would be more accurate. I didn’t see any hot spring pools constructed in the river but if you dig around with your feet you can find some nice warm water. Stunning views overlooking the canyon.

Old Jeep Grand Cherokee loved this rocky dirt road. Slow going in some spots. Views would have been even better if not for the smoke from the wildfires that had drifted into the area.

Amazing, beautiful worth the pain. Took my out of shape and bad knee 3.25 hours to top. Bucket list. Pace yourself. Tough trail especially when it’s icy.

incredible hike. Love being Down Under the hoodoos. Steep beginning and end but I hiked it with my three year old and nine year old and they did fine.

My first time. Awesome trail, breathe taking views and easy ride. No 4wd needed. A few camp sites along the trail, perfect for a quick overnighter. Already planning to go back soon.

It was a beautiful winter hike! Definitely recommend bringing yak-tracks or crampons for the slicker parts.

Fun spot to relax and enjoy the beauty of nature!

easy hike down a ravine to a 77 foot waterfall. There is an observation deck , and and a lower deck. Be sure and go after a good rain! It’s a multiple time a year trip for us due to its proximity to home. Only about 20 minutes ... we always combine with another trail and some time at the playground ! Watch out for snakes, and bring your binoculars ! Kid friendly!
