The gate is open but the trail is still closed. When we tried to go, there was a ranger parked by the trailhead enforcing the closure. Not sure when it will open back up.

So it’s closed and you pay a lot and could go to jail if you will succeed with the hot spring adventure. But best case scenario the sherif could be an easy going guy and would let it slip or no sheriff at all... So it’s a risk that I will pass for now.

The Fifth Water trail and specifically the hot springs area are currently (4/25/2020) closed indefinitely by the Forest Service due to COVID-19. This closure applies to the entire Diamond Fork Rd. and the more popular 3 Forks Trailhead, but also extends along the rest of the Fifth Water trail to the lesser-known Ray's Valley trailhead. Furthermore, Forest Rd. 051 (Sheep Creek Rd.) was closed (gated shut) as of 4/25 ~6 mi. South of Ray's Valley trailhead. Please see https://www.fs.usda.gov/alerts/uwcnf/alerts-notices for potential updates, or call the ranger station.

We made the hike at night and it was very manageable! The hot springs are gorgeous and the view of the stars is phenomenal.
