Tessa L. on Fifth Water Hot Springs Trail
Love the hot pots. Great trail. Just FYI, as of March 7th, the road was still blocked off 4 miles from the trailhead so it ended up being about 12 miles total. Allow for extra time (I didn't XD), but it's doable in under 4 hours if you're in a hurry and don't stop.
We took the kids (6, 4, and 2) we made our way to the top of the falls but I am pretty sure we missed the turn that would have led us to the bottom of the falls. It was a beautiful hike, with amazing views. The snow is still very abundant on the trail. We plan on going again a little later in Spring and trying to find the trail that leads to the bottom of the falls.
Love this hike! One of my favorites especially the large waterfall. Today was very dry in the beginning but throughout the trail is a fair amount of snow and slush. At the waterfall there was not alot of snow surprisingly. Would advise wearing spikes on your shoes.
