Explore the most popular hot springs trails in United States with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

Beautiful.... the drive, the hot springs, the view of the trains driving by while you soak... amazing. The hot springs is pretty small, but it was perfect on a Monday afternoon. About 7 other people were there. The hike is short and simple. When you see the warning sign look to the left and that’s where the train leads you to the hot springs. Not muddy and the water was a perfect 80 degrees.

I am trying to hike this weekend 4/28.. I see some roads are closed. Will I be able to hike to summit still?

Thanks for any advice !

really good hike and great views while you hike.

Excellent hike! We went in mid March. The route wasn’t fully packed down and there are only markers every mile. Used the gps on this app whenever we second guessed the trail. Took us about 6-7 hours in snowshoes - the snow was commonly mid thigh deep.

About a 10mile hike in total if the gate is closed. It’s a very easy hike with little to know elevation changes until about the last 0.5 mile. If the gate is open it’s about a 2mile hike in total. Dog friendly. Kid friendly. One of the loveliest views in New Mexico! Worth the hike!

Go early or weekdays to avoid crowds. Clean up after your selves! Be prepared to see naked people ☺️

This trail kicked out butts!! But it was so worth it! We went a few years ago in October. It was warm and sunny. Def need to come back and give it another climb!

Really enjoyable hike and great hot springs.

Not a trail or a hike but it’s a nice soak! Get there early for sure since it’s just one tub. More privacy there than Quinn’s

Trail access is currently closed due to construction! Apparently building first responder access!

Lots of people- but so so pretty!!

Amazing views from the canyon! Wild flowers along the trail in mid April.

I found someone’s wedding ring on the trail today. If you lost your ring please contact me by email at jbump86@gmail.com. Hopefully whoever lost it sees this.

Overall great time! The hike out was painful, but well worth it. The pools were a great temp (minus the first, that was a scorcher). We will do again once it starts to cool down again.

This was a amazing experience! The hike was easy and beautiful in some places. Me and my family went on a Saturday and it wasn’t as busy as I thought it was going to be. Parking was the only issue because of the amount of people! I would definitely do this again! We got in the hot springs and everything was very laid back and fun!

Fun little hike with beautiful views.

Bummer, the trail is closed. We tried on 4/22/18, all access is closed.

To call it a loop is misleading. It does connect, you just have to use some critical thinking skills. Also, it is more than 5.5 miles. That being said, it was worth the aggravation on the way back. The trail goes through a drive in camp site that has a hard top road. You will pass two toilet facilities on the return trip almost back to the resort.

There were some minor falls all along the trail and the main falls were amazing! The old growth and mossy trees reminded me of where Tree Beard would live if we were in Middle Earth. Some wash out areas and tree falls made it slightly difficult to navigate. Overall, worth it. Make sure you have water proof boots.

The trail was easy. Easy to take the wrong loop. My Garmin Oregon 700 was not much help; But the map on my wife's I phone did help. The gravel/ sand makes the going slow for us 68 year old husband and wife. We averaged closer to 1 mph rather than the 2 or 3 mph we walk when in the city or on hard pack trails. The views are nice and the hot springs was enjoyable. We liked seeing the Colorado river. Best part was meeting so many nice people

Love this hike. Good elevation changes and bouldering down lower. Love to sit in the Springs. Definitely worth your while.

Gorgeous hike! Beautiful bluffs after you drop into little bear, and get on the river. Definitely a scenic and worth while hike! The pool is big enough to stretch out and enjoy, was tucked perfectly into the hill across the river when you get to a little camp site (look north/NE, on river bed for small trail leading up - the pool is not on the main river!).

Not easy to find but worth it when we finally did! Follow Ney Springs Rd. Park at the first turnout on the left and walk up the road to the right. If you’ve reached the bridge you’ve gone too far. There are no trail markers! Walk up to the right, the creek will be on your left. You will see some ruins from the old Ney Springs Resort on your right...almost there! When it starts getting steep veer to your left, climb down the rocks and behold Faery Falls!

Did this hike last summer- beautiful and well worth all the switchbacks!

Beautiful moss covered everything with varied terrain. A great place test out some gear or break in new boots due to the varying terrain. I experienced gravel, dirt, water over rocks, moss covered paths, inclines, declines, lightly showered with water from waterfalls, etc.
Waterfalls of all shapes and sizes can be seen from varying angles and directly behind.
This includes some of the smaller day trails; definitely worth experiencing.
Plenty of parking available; five dollar parking for the day at south trail. Also, there is a picnic area, small cafe, and restrooms at the south trail entrance. There's some parking at the north trail, not nearly as much as at south trail. There is a single privy at north trail also.
Definitely recommend if in the area. Not to be missed.

I looove this place. Please pack out what you pack in.

Scenic and steady hike up. Perfect amount of backpacking-per-day. Springs were great, campground was dispersed. We thought the hike was quite manageable, but we found two texans stranded on the trail with no water and some pretty bad altitude sickness. Creeks are everywhere, so bring a water filter. High avalanche danger in the winter.

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

Were spikes needed at all?

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

Is it 5 mile one way or out and back?
