not good for kids!

I mean I think if your kids are experienced hikers and rock scramblers they may be ok. I did it last month with children ages 3-6 and the scramble down to the pools was really challenging for them. Also, this being New Mexico, fellow hikers and hot spring users may be in various stages of undress- so there is that to consider. Not necessarily a problem, but it's worth mentioning.

the drive to the hot springs was pretty tricky as well.

All this to say- it's a beautiful spot! The river gorge is a stunning place for a soak and a rock scramble.
