Road up the springs is rough. Need a truck or suv. Go during the day very dark at night w no lights to see where you are going. Beautiful sunsets.

I myself am out if shape, my daughter is 9. We took our time, and enjoyed everything along the way. We went in mid October, the day after some snow flurries. there was just enough snow to keep her going.

Firstly, the fact that you can hike to Strawberry Hot Springs is incredible and quite the reward! The trailhead itself is hard to find. Once you park in the lot, walk to the opposite side of the kit from the trailhead sign. Walk along the road for about .5 of a mile until there is an inlet where the trail actually begins. It's about 5 and 1/2 miles round trip. The trail is pretty narrow most of the time right in the forest. It's much better than driving or paying for the hot springs shuttle.

Gentle climb up the to hot springs. The spring was beautiful, expensive but beautiful. The hike was pretty tame, not much to see apart from very long grasses. Following the creek was nice as that gave a slightly open view every now and again

Beautiful easy hike through the woods along side the winding Mad Creek. There and back we only encountered two other hiking groups. Many snake and small lizard sightings. Butterflies galore. Lots of chipmunks. One dead elk carcass which must be quite old.

Great way to visit the Strawberry Park Hot Springs by a relaxing hike to and from.

Amazing trail. Beautiful views. Ends at hot springs where you can make a pit stop for bathroom and water.

Beautiful hot springs, a great way to relax after a hike. The last part of the road outside of Steamboat up to the hot springs is packed dirt with inclines, chains are required in winter and AWD for rainy days.

Camping is available at the hot springs as well.

My friends and I parked at the hot springs and walked about 1 mile out and back. There were pretty views of river. It was a pretty easy hike. We enjoyed the hot springs as well.

Really nice hike. Very narrow though and best in the am.

There is a trail to the hot springs but this was not it. You can actually drive right to it. There is a cash fee to use it. 15 adult and 8 for kids. Plenty of very clean bathrooms and changing areas. Some pools very hot and some cool to cold. The hiking trail is past the parking lot and hot springs and it goes along the river.

hiked into the hot springs. such a stunning trail. you follow the river all the way there, right next to it. great views. you're on a service like road for maybe a mile or so and then it becomes more like a trail. very remote and not a lot of foot traffic. be prepared, it takes some time getting there but the reward of the hot springs is worth it!

Out of all the hot springs I have been to this one has a pretty natural feel about it. As the other reviews have said the road the springs is pretty rough and they only take cash. Also if you do stay after sundown you will hear some pretty interesting noises coming from all around you seeing as how it's clothing optional after dark.

Don't be fooled by the nice website. The place is a huge disappointment. First the drive was muddy and tricky. Bring water because these rednecks dont have a water fountain. Then the place itself is rusty and rundown. The grossest thing was the feces inside one of the pools and out. Got my kids right out and on the way home. But there was no place to shower! Health Department needs to look into this place or shut them down. Don't waste your vacation, there are other hot pools in town.
