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!

The trail was very therapeutic is the best way to describe it. Easy trail and very beautiful scenery along the way. It was was interesting how the scenery went from normal to a forest. The donut falls area was very nice, we sat for snacks and enjoyed the view when we reached the top.

Went on a father daughter trip and ran into some really slippery slick rock because it started pouring down rain randomly. Outside of that, it was beautiful!

Went at sunset and it was beautiful!

beautiful trail!

Amazing hike! Snow was very packed down and icy or slushy depending on sun exposure - microspikes and poles recommended, snowshoes not necessary.

Love this trail in the summer and the winter. A bit icy this last time but that is to be expected. Quiet and calm hike. Snow does sink in some areas but not bad if you stick close to the trail. Beautiful!

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.

Love this trail in the early spring every year! The 2, 4 and 6 year olds managed just fine without any carrying. Great lookout point that makes everyone feel accomplished!

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 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.

I have been to Donut falls in the summer and the Winter. We hiked it March 16th. In the winter the snow is packed down enough that you don't need snowshoes. Some people were wearing tennis shoes. We wore our snow pants, hoodies and snow boots. I am glad I wore waterproof boots because when you get to the top and go in the falls you can walk through the shallow water under the falls. The hike is easy and beautiful. In the summer you will have to climb up some rocks to go into the falls. I recommend going in both the summer and the winter.

The hike up is a series of switchbacks and steep enough that these Florida hikers were out of breath pretty quickly. how about we took our time and enjoy the view. There is a lot of traffic noise as you go up.

at the top there is a marker but it mentions nothing about Adams Falls. we went to the right and it appears we made the right choice. went down into a canyon and it became peaceful and quiet with the sound of rushing water.

There was still quite a bit of ice and so we were unable to make it to the waterfall. we stopped at the bridge and enjoyed the water and then hiked back.

At the marker we tried the other side and that basically took us along a ridge that overlooks the city. We didn't take that very far before we turned back.

Overall it was a nice outing and would be a good place to try again when the ice melts.

Hiked this St. Patty’s Day for the 3rd time now. First time with snow and it was still just as awesome. Definitely need Yak Trax and poles near the top where it’s steep when there is snow. Great hike!

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!

This trail was super fun. Not very hard either, its only difficult to find the trail in one spot but otherwise its got great views and cool arches.

Very nice views, it gets steep in some parts especially near the top.

We got lost in the middle of the loop at some point, so we were not able to finish and missed a couple of the arches, but it was still a blast! Pine tree arch was our favorite.

This is a great hike with amazing views. Earlier today was a mix of dirt, mud, snow pow, deep snow and slush! I will definitely be doing it again with my hiking poles and in the spring & summer!

There was quite a bit of snow on the ground when I did this hike and it was snowing as we went. The snow made the hike even more beautiful! The trail was already packed down from hikers before us! There were some steep parts which the snow made challenging but the waterfall at the top was totally worth it! By far my favorite hike in the area so far!

Just got done with this hike and I am super pumped that I made it up to the top. Took me a while but I made it!!! Coming down with Yaktrax Diamond Grips on I was sliding on some parts. Hit the ground a few times and one time I hit pretty hard... Tylenol here I come!!!! I will say that the trail was slushy in some parts due to the sun...take a hat if it's gonna be sunny. Also if you are into hiking when it's warmer out then you will be happy to know at least for today I saw signs of Spring. Saw a smaller river with some pretty good flow and also a waterfall too. That's the first I have seen that in quite a few months. This is supposed to be one of the easiest peaks to get to, but it put a whooping on me. I really think this was perfect to challenge me without really killing me....I got a sore back and probably some legs that aren't liking me but it's all good.

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

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.
