love this hike! it's never too crowded but expect a few people around between 10-2. it's a nice work out all the way through.

I love this hike, such a beautiful view and totally worth the moderate hike!

I'm looking to do this hike tomorrow and I am wondering what the trail is like. I've done it in the Spring before, but the weather has been so unpredictable lately.

Were spikes needed at all?

@jared, roughly 2.5 miles each way, 5 total.

Is it 5 mile one way or out and back?

once you turn off the Indian trail and head South (not marked) you pretty much are going up, up and up. The valley is peaceful and you won't pass any other hikers. Lots of animal tracks in the mud and snow once you are in the canyon. Totally worth doing, but be prepared to climb.

Loved this trail! I went on a Monday and it was not heavily trafficked at all. There were people there but I had a couple pools to myself at most times. The springs were incredible and such a treat. The hike itself was not difficult. I would recommend to not wear jewelry in the hot springs, I didn't realize this but the sulfur in the springs oxidized my silver ring. I don't hate it, just unexpected. A little added souvenir if you will. Highly recommend! There was some trash which was unfortunate but it was incredible overall.

Scenic hike. Our trip was cut short by a moose in the middle of the path. There are still some patches of snow that you’ll have to go over, but nothing deep.

Nice hike along a waterfall, be careful it’s easy to fall in! Wish there were more pictographs.

The mine is cool and worth the hike. I wouldn't take my children past the mine to the flag. I recommend going up farmington canyon to get to the dirt road then hike from there.

Great trail!

It's awesome and very beautiful!

Great short run — steep, rolling hills and really steep — everything you need.

fun easy hike the kids loved it. lots of boulders to climb and explore.

Beautiful views, the waterfall was awesome! Highly recommend this hike.

Great hike. The views are amazing.

hiked today, very hard hike. Bring hiking cleats for the last mile, lots of slush and mud. Cabin is still in good condition, bring a pen for the log book.

We went up today and it was beautiful. Be prepared for lots of snow on the upper trail! I had my yak tracks but others on the trail did not and had to turn around before the falls. The last .5 is steep! My legs and lungs were burning but it’s so worth it to see the falls in snow and with less people than summer.

Challenging hike. Beautiful view at the top worth the work.

Beautiful day! Great moderately paced hike. Slightly rocky with elevation for a little way at the start. The views all around keep your eyes busy. Family and dog friendly. :)

It was a good hike. Rocky but good. The second half was still covered in snow making it hard to navigate the rocks. The view was spectacle. Our dogs did good on this hike too.

Such a fun trail! We got there around 10 this morning, thinking it was early enough to beat the crowds, we were wrong. Parking was crazy. But the hike to the springs was beautiful and easy. We took our two boys 7 & 2. When we got to the springs a nice lady told us where a good spot to sit with kids was! I was surprised by how hot some spots were. But it was amazing! Seriously, such a fun experience. We took a garbage bag and picked up some garbage we saw coming out, but honestly it wasn’t to bad! Also someone before us had said a kid had cut them selves on some glass but we never saw any. Getting out of the parking lot when we got back was kind of a joke. People will just park anywhere even if it boxes someone in. My advice would be to park on the road.

Hiked up there will my toddler in a backpack and, a 6 & 9 year old. Very pretty. My kids did great and LOVED the hot springs.

My 5 yr old twins and I hiked this trail today and was not disappointed.
They handled the trail great and the waterfall at the end was a great reward.
Beautiful hike and will be returning.

Such a stunning overlook towards Salt Lake and beautiful flowers along the path.

Mid April, 3ft snow, but trail is fairly packed. I recommend micro spikes to help with the slick inclines near the start. Also, wear boots. If you don't have snowshoes, you'll do a few snow lunges, particularly near the lake. Snowshoes will get in the way at the start, but would help the lake area be more enjoyable.

Went up this morning, broken glass on the trail and in the lowest spring. Removed as much as I could. Would highly advise wearing flip flops or something.

Beautiful and not super difficult trail with a treat at the end of it. We hiked it about a month ago and were amazed by the variety of colors.

The last mile or so of the trail still has packed snow, making the hike down a little slippery. I didn't have spikes and managed fine with good hiking shoes and a wooden stick I found near the trail =). The first and last parts of the trail will get your legs burning, but the view at the end is totally worth it. There's plenty of beautiful spots along the trail to stop and rest and enjoy the beauty.
