Breathtaking! My youngest who is 7 was able to keep up fine. Some climbing involved for the hike so dogs are not able to come. The bridge and waterfall are breathtaking! It wasn’t too busy when we went at 1:30. But you do need to pay a $7 fee per person to do the hike and site-seeing.

A really gorgeous hike that led us to the Colorado River before making our way back. As suggested by other hikers, we started with the Hot Springs and went back up the canyon. There was some scrambling getting to the hot springs, but nothing too serious.

We brought an extra pair of socks and a small towel to dry our feet after the hot springs and was glad we did.

Of note, the trail markings are close to non-existent. We had to use the built-in map in this app a few times to make sure we were heading the right way!

Fantastic trail, submerged in a mars-like lakescape. The hot springs are wonderful, the pools have varying temperatures and are spacious; plenty of camping opportunities around. I recommend doing the trail clockwise, Arizona hot springs trail first, as it is steep, exposed and more strenuous and the white canyon trail on the way out, as it is shady and a steady mild uphill, which is especially pleasant if you carry a heavy pack. The trail overall is moderate but does come with some challenging but fun obstacles. (If you plan to soak: be careful and don't let water come into your nose, they've had fatal cases of amoeba neagleria fowleri at this location!)

This was a great trail. Did the loop going through the hot springs on the way down. Turned out to be 6.5 miles and a great day.

Absolutely beautiful. The Natural Bridge was definitely breath taking. If you pay attention during the hike, you might be able to see squirrels, field mice, and cardinals! There is one area of the hike that’s a little difficult underneath the Natural Bridge, but other than that, a nice, beautiful, moderate trail.

My absolute favorite short hike in Arizona! Make sure to wear shoes with good tread! Don’t go when it’s super rainy (they will close the trail). Get to the park early to avoid the crowds and make sure you get good photos! Saw several squirrels and a tiny mouse!

easy hike trail kinda hard to find a 2nd keep. but a carin marks where the stream crossing is. Great place to relax in hot springs.

A beautiful trail with a great destination. There were four different hot springs to choose from. The first was waaay to hot but the other three were perfect. The Colorado river is just a short hike past the hot springs. The trail could use more signs. It gets a little confusing in some areas. The trail is closed from May 15th to Sep 30th. I guess due to the heat?
