The hike starts at Dripping Springs campground. $5.00 to park if you don't have a National Park Pass. This hike is very similar to Dripping Springs (being that they're connected), nothing too difficult. Nice rolling hills, super rocky on the incline, and a whole bunch of sun. Plenty of spots to chill on high rock formations along the way. Expect crowds on the weekends!Show more

Agua Tibia full loop trail with an extension on the Cutca trail up to the Eagle Crag summit. Very difficult day hike, fairly strenuous overnight backpack with a place to camp just past the cutoff for the Eagle Crag Summit. There is NO water on the trail.Show more
