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

This is not a review but a question for those who had the opportunity to experience what looks like an incredible place! -
I am planning a trip through Utah's NPs May 17-26. Would love to hike out to the hot springs and camp there to have a really early morning soak. Is this something that can be done at Fifth Water Hot Springs? If so, are there plenty of spaces to camp assuming many others may have the same idea as well?
Thank you in advanced!

Really moderate trail that's super accessible. Great to run, bike, hike

Hiked this trail yesterday (3/20/19) with my littles , there was a little bit of snow and mud on the trail but nothing we couldn’t handle . Love taking my younger kids on this trail we normally hike to the bridge and back this is pretty easy for my two year old. The park at the trail head is a nice bonus for them as well.

breathtaking views!

Not good except for skis or snowshoes rn! Pretty track but close to the road so you always hear cars.
A good workout when not packed for hikers, like today!

Lovely with the dogs!

This is one of the most beautiful trails I’ve ever hiked! I have only done it in the winter. The bright blue waters next to the snow make for amazing pictures. The hike is challenging in some spots, but there is so much beauty around you, you’ll barley notice. And once you get to the end of the trail you’re rewarded by the warm hot springs! So fun and worth it! All over AMAZING.

Great trail - did this Saturday morning and it took me an hour up and back. Steep but worth it. Lots of folks were off trail because the trail itself was extremely muddy. I stayed on it but was kind of mud skiing on the way back down. Expect muddy boots at the end of this during this time of year (late winter/early spring); bring a change of shoes in the car. Parking is in a neighborhood so just be respectful. If you want a 20 minute experience the Vista Overlook is super easy to get to and gives a very nice view as well. Well-marked right off the early part of the trail.

Little muddy in spots. Good for dogs. Easy

Snowy path. Crazy scramble towards the end. Last half mile is varied. Can’t wait for spring to actually bloom some plant life. Will do again in the fall/summer to get realistic view of path in prime time.

This is a very long walk where it all looks very much the same. I started walking at the county trailhead and went in about 1.5 miles then turned back around. Super easy hike. Good for dogs, had mine with me and she seemed entertained enough. There's not a lot of shade so I would avoid midday if its warm out. Basically a dirt road with some tall grass on each side and a few trees.

This trail is awesome. Very snowy right now, but also very peaceful and relaxing. It’s not terribly difficult… Except for the deep snow parts. But it is completely worth it if you have the time. Lots of deer.

It was kinda hard. Most of it is uphill. But push yourself! You will not regret the view at the end!! And it’s foggy friendly so added bonus! Has views of the Colorado River, then views of the town at the very top.

Easy conditioning hike, steep and sweet.

Pretty muddy this time of year.

The climb up is much easier than it looks. The last mile after the second valley is less exciting for hiking.

The hike to the falls is about 0.9 miles up. the remaining 1.1 miles puts you in a flat meadow with an amazing view of Utah Lake! A little above the Falls crampons are recommended. Especially coming down. The last 1/2 mile, snowshoes would be nice but not absolutely needed. Gaiters...definitely. You're gonna sink a bit. lol. Steep but great hike!

Great views, fun cave to see !

You can drive right up to the canyon, so not really a trail. The views are absolutely stunning. I'll be going back to camp here!

Beautiful place to walk and hike. A little bit of snow but not much. Good temperatures and fun place to take kids.

This was a really fun ride. It’s not incredibly difficult and could certainly be a beginner ride, but the scenery is incredible the entire time. The trail rides quick at parts but there are also some touch short climbs. All in all, I definitely recommend making time for this ride if you’re looking for something a little more low-key than the big names in the area (slickrock, captain ahah, etc.) but don’t want to miss out on the unique Moab experience.

Completed this hike, which was beautiful! The first part of the trail was a bit snowy. Couldn't find the trail exactly. So we hiked up the road and started at the turn around area. It had signs for a horse trail. Very easy to follow until this small ridge. We lost the trail and had to scramble down the other side where we saw tons of steady footprints (wouldn't recommend this). To avoid that, I'd go farther up the road and cut over right on one of the other trails available, then meet up with the designated trails. It's pretty easy to see. There is a mix of snowmobile and people tracks. Either will get you to the lake. Watch out for snowmobiles if you're on the roads or hear them nearby. We didn't have any problems, but were also looking out. Amazing views at the end with everything snow covered. We left about 8:30AM for the hike and were back before noon. We spent a decent amount of time just hanging out at the end, as well. Also, we did this hike with hiking boots, Yak Trax, and hiking poles. Could have done it without the Yak Trax, but would have been harder.

Cell/ communications tower right at start of trail. If that’s something you care about proximity to trail at various points range from 20ft and up with panels seemingly pointed right at the trail.  really??

Still a lot of snow on the top part of trail, spikes would have helped but we made it without them. Beautiful pay off at the end.
