Great trail, particularly in the snow covered tracks!

Good trail definitely steep and will get your heart rate up. Distance is good, round trip took us 2 hrs with multiple pauses to rest. Saw a squirrel and some birds would definitely hike this trail again!

Solid hike. Great views.

Beautiful views. We started the trail around 4pm and stayed to see the sun setting on the way down.

Great fairly easy hike to the top. The trail is not very steep and is very wide. Very good views of the surrounding area.

Great hiking trail.

Packed my microspikes but didn’t ever have to pull them out of my pack. Awesome hike. Insanely windy at the summit. Make sure you dress warm!

Easy to find, nice getaway that is close to town. Several trail options

I took my 4 children ages 5-13 to the springs last week (Jan 13, 2018). The trail was easy enough and the trailhead was super easy to find. When you get to the bottom of the trail to the river, cross and then turn left. The springs will be on the river bank. There are about 4-5 pools. It was a bit crowded but we went on a long weekend. The towns people are super friendly and you should stop off and eat in their cafes. Patronize their businesses.

Easy trail- really pretty.

Trail can be difficult close to the river. The canyon is beautiful and hot springs are small but relaxing. Primitive camping at trail head.

We got a little lost towards the end where the trails converge, but just went back the way we came. Did this trail with a 7-year-old and 14-year-old who really enjoyed it.

Great easier type hike! Great wide open vista views 360 degrees. Well marked and maintained trails, clean potty at trail head. Beautiful weather for January, and good for winter hikes. Same hike in July would be brutal anytime after 10am. Was a little disappointed that both the bigger volcano trails were closed for habitat rehab. You can still summit the center volcano, but the far north and south ones are closed to hiking. I'm completely on board with the habitat rehab, hopefully they will open a trail or 2 up to those summits sometime in the future.

All signs are rotted, fallen or missing. Felt like we got lost or on wrong path so we set off in the direction of our car then randomly hit the trail we were originally supposed to be on... cute trail with some nice views but ended being almost 8 miles and put me in a bad mood feeling off track.

Somehow only hiked 5.75. But enjoyable without being difficult. Saw elk and mule deer.

This place is a MUST GO. The gypsum sand is beautiful and the park is so open, vast and you just get this sense of freedom. We pulled off on a side parking spot and headed out with our dogs and just found our own little spot. The dogs absolutely loved the sand and watching them run around without a care in the world gives ya a good feeling. The sky touches the sand and you can see the mountains in the far background. Absolutely breathtaking. This is by far one of my favorite parks and I’m so glad we took the time to spend a couple hours there.

fantastic little hike especially if you don't mind getting a little wet. I'll definitely be back!

Beautiful country. Many hiking and camping opportunities. Great history museum in Alamos with the Nuclear site. NIce drive through the area or can stay for days.

The spring and pool is a unique feature to the landscape. The inscriptions and hieroglyphs are very well preserved. This is a destination hike. While there the Headland hike is a must.

This is a quick, easy to follow trail with some fun pools and old buildings along the way. Like others have said, I would rate this as easy not moderate but it's still a really nice hike.
