Awesome hike to do during sunrise/sunset! The peaks offer an awesome view. A lot harder than I expected but a welcome challenge.

Excellent trail advice.

Awesome trail, hiked in the snow but as of right now it's well packed and easy walking. The creek crossing has a kind of sketchy looking ice bridge but it felt pretty solid walking across. Definitely more like 11 miles out and back, not 9.3. The hot springs themselves are amazing, with one shallow but big, clean and hot pool to soak in and a few others that might be good sometimes but were pretty slimy when we were there. It's also relatively flat and open so I'm sure it would make for great camping in the summer. These are our new favorite natural hot springs for sure.

Beautiful place to sit and have a picnic or take a peaceful walk. Family friendly with a chalkboard wall under one of the bridges. Kids loved it! Nice little day out with family.

The trail loops near the top where you’ll find a small water stream. It has great views of snake river and surroundings! I’d recommend hiking the trail in the winter time to get some great photos of the snow.

good trail to walk with your dog. could be difficult to walk if you are a senior. I've done several 2 mile loops on this Trail, steep Trail up, moderate down Trail back to the bridge. I'm in my 70s.

It's alright, but if you take your dogs just be careful of others, no one we came across there seemed to believe in leashes or understood what voice control was.

If you visit it, please don't destroy it. Please preserve it.

My first time here and this is a great winter visit! Be prepared tho microspikes saved my toosh a few times. If you are going bring them! Doable without but my hiking partner hit the ground several times as did his dog. There are several pools but we arrived a little late and got the middle pool. Enough for 2-3 people of your friendly :). Rumors of cars being broken into at the trailhead so take precautions with your valuables.

Fun easy hike. Lots of signs to tell you about the wildlife and foliage in the area. A short portion of the hike takes you down by the water and a giant house. Looks like there are some smaller trails to explore as well.

Easy paved trail that takes you down to a river. Not a lot to see and very short.

Very easy hike for kids. Lots of historical information and a great shot of the falls. There is an area for kids to play as well.

Good hike with some elevation. Hike to the river is a bit lackluster but still a decent hike.

Very boring trail that is sandwiched between rocks and a chain link fence. You can leave this trail and really explore the park. This part though is not worth the time.

This is not much of a hike, per se, but it is a nice spot to picnic or play in the lovely park next to the falls. I always make this a stop, while riding bikes on the nearby trails.

Not much of a trail for part and then no trail for the other half. Definitely don’t bring kids as they can easily slide off the very narrow trail if it is slick. It seems like most of the area for hiking is actually a frisbee golf course.

Nice short trail for the fam.

Very easy mild hike, beautiful in the spring and summer, blooming flowers!

Was a fun hike in the snow! The trail color coordination wasn't easy to understand, but it was still a beautiful hike. FYI the trail that runs by the river at the bottom is PURPLE color. Enjoy the hike! :)

Very pretty trail. Not the prettiest hike in this area though. But the Wind Cave is phenomenal! The photos here don't provide it justice. Amazingly tall entrance. Lots of room inside to climb around and explore. Be sure to bring headlamps to allow unhindered exploring. I'm not sure why this trail is rated as difficult. My 4 year old niece managed the hike up all on her own.

There is a dirt lot on the right just past the marina and the trail starts across the street.
Bring hiking poles! The trail is accessible in the winter but you will want the poles for some ice patches at the top and your knees on the way down. Be ready for some thigh burning 2,000 feet straight up with little relief! Stunning views from the top of the foothills that go on forever.

perfect for a beginner hiker

Pretty nature hike!

Our yearly trek! Waterfall canyon is also definitely worth the extra push. If you're planning to make it an overnighter the far side of the upper lake is the prime territory. Been up here 4 years running and have always seen wildlife. Last time a moose stumbled upon us and gave us all a good jump. I don't know who was more surprised us or her.
