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!

Nice short hike. The last section to the cave is short but a moderate climb. The waterfalls are nice as well. I think the best part of the hike are the views of the hoodoos. Good for families. My 7yr old loved the river and waterfall. It was a perfect evening hike after eating pizza in Tropics. .

This was a great easy hike. It should be easy for all ability levels. It’s paved all the way with options to walk on unpaved trails along the river which is less crowded and more peaceful. Even though the narrows is closed the canyon walls are impressive and worth the time. My 7yr old loved playing near the river and seeing rock climbers climbing. One of the best hikes in the canyon. We spent at least an hour there with frequent stops.

*TAKE THE FIRST SHUTTLE TO AVOID THE CHAOS OF LATER DAY*

Incredible hike and incredible views, but my goodness—going up that last .5 mile stretch to the summit was terrifying. There were a few places where one wrong step or one loose rock, and that would be the end. Still.... if you are nimble footed and not too afraid of heights, I highly recommend it for some of the best views of Zion and an exhilarating experience/feeling of accomplishment. We took the 7am shuttle out, and we were thankful not to have to worry about people coming down while we were going up. I was worried about making it back down, but it was much easier going down than coming up.

All this being said.. if you decide against that last half mile scramble or want to continue your hike after you make it down from Angels Landing, just continue up West Rim trail for just as spectacular views and less crowds (especially if you go a little off trail... but be careful). We did both, and honestly, we enjoyed West Rim more than Angels Landing.

This paved path was a nice little hike. I would of enjoyed it more if it wasn’t so busy. For us it was a constant stream of people. My 7yr old son enjoyed the falls at the end. It’s paved but I wouldn’t consider it wheelchair accessible. It’s full of inclines/declines. There are a couple little drop offs that could cause some injuries if parents aren’t mindful of their younger children. There are a few nice views of the canyon.

Breathtaking, and we saw only one runner the entire time we were there. It felt like we were the only people in the whole world.

In order to access the trailhead, take highway 12 towards Bryce. It is before the red canyon visitor center on the right hand side. There is a small area for parking, and you will see a marker for the trail. If you get to the visitor center on the left hand side, you’ve gone too far (though we also highly recommend you explore pink ledges from the visitor center as well).

Make sure to complete the castle bridge loop! Fantastic views!! A little sketchy at parts though.. be safe and take your time.

Pretty steep at the beginning but after that first bit it's easy going. Lots of wildflowers and the stream is tranquil. Not too many people on the trail either. Took about two and a half hours total but I did stop and eat breakfast at the stream

My husband and I did this loop counter clockwise today. It was amazing! The views are spectacular and none of the crowds like Zion. Highly recommend! Bring lots of liquid and sunscreen!

Difficult to find the living room view. We hiked and couldn’t find it. It would be helpful if there were signs leading to the view. However, it was still a great hike. We did find a few nice lookout spots!

Well worth the trek to the waterfall! Signs to the trail to stand next to the waterfall says it’s “steep” but it’s quite easy and kid friendly. There are a few spots on the trail you will need to be careful but it is a quick easy hike up. Well worth it to take a picture next to the falls. The water was freezing cold but worth standing in the water for a great picture.

Short hike with a great view!

Great trail! I hiked this trail end of April and there was still a lot of snow. I don’t recommend this trail to kids. It’s not exactly an easy trail as the whole trail (aside from the mile hike to the trail head) was on snow. When we got to the falls it was a slippery hike up and we pretty much slid down on our bottoms to go back down. All and all it was a very fun hike in the snow.

Outstanding trail. Not to busy and it was recommended and worth the sunset..

I took my four kids in this hike and it was perfect. It was short and scenic plus it ended with water. We were adventurous and slid down the water fall. The water was cold but it felt good on a hot day.

Whew. It's a great view, and you have to work for it. Lots of mud and packed snow, go early in the day when the snow is still frozen or else you'll be tripping and stumbling through slush. Wear pants and shoes you don't mind getting dirty cause you're probably going to fall a lot! I made it to the top in about 2 hours and 20 minutes, had the trail to myself the whole way up, ran into several other hikers as I was coming down.

Tried to go up it this morning. Lots of places where an avalanche could hit. Saw the mound of snow where it did come down in one spot. We got about a mile and a half in before turning around. Despite not making it all the way up, it's still a beautiful hike.

This trail was a fun and moderate hike. There was a a lot of wildlife. I saw over 5 deer! The scenery was breathtaking. Over all it is a great hike. I loved it!!

First, the climb up to the beginning of Peekaboo is extremely difficult since many of the so-called footholds have been worn smooth by the high usage on the sandstone. Of the dozen or so ascents we witnessed (including ours and even some young people) about half required someone at the top pulling the person up while someone at the bottom pushed or provided a foot anchor. OK for 20-year-olds. Not so for older people without a lot of upper-body strength. Sooner or later, someone will seriously hurt themselves. Once at the top of the start, the canyon is beautiful and complex to navigate BUT you will encounter more ascents on slippery rock that you need to be aware of. We went to the end of Peekaboo but did not do the loop and came back out and walked around to Spooky. We went into Spooky from the bottom. It IS narrow a hundred or so yards in. The tightest spot we measured was about 10-12 inches and I actually got stuck going in sideways (and I'm not a big person) and had to back out. So be prepared of you don't like tight places. These are amazing canyons but not for people who aren't physically fit to do the hikes or have any issues about tight squeezes.. We have been hiking for decades and this pair of canyons is probably the most difficult to handle physically we have encountered. Quite frankly, the descriptions about the start of Spooky that we have read understate how hard the starting climb is.

I have hiked this canyon over 135 times, and I have never seen the waterfalls be as pretty as they were last night (April 23) . I think there are 10 waterfalls to watch for here 4 in the bottom tier, 4 in the top tier, 2 with the V shape above the bridge, and you could also probably count the waterfall the natural spring is making another. I would get up and do this canyon soon! Also watch for the sweet pea flowers. Bridge is crooked, so I don't think I would be spending too much time hanging out on it. Something is off with it. I did a blog about this hike if you want to see all the falls and how pretty they are right now at shaunasadventures dot com search Grove Creek.

This is a great hike if you are short on time. There is an amazing view at the end. This is a very unique and kid friendly hike. WARNING: You may get a little wet.

Easy hike. Even in the snow. Since it’s so popular it’s pretty packed down and easy to follow. Still suggest boots over sneakers when there’s snow.

Great trail! Wasn’t too crowded compared to more popular trails in the park. Steady incline to the top but very manageable. I would rate it moderate. Fantastic views up the canyon. There’s a short loop at the top that’s mostly flat that offers even better views.

Fabulous hike. Much of it is exposed to the sun. Recommend pressing on past the creek to get views of the canyon from both sides, the added elevation gain is minimal and you can experience more of what the canyon has to offer.

Beautiful views. Butterflies. Nice and cool. I tried this trail a little bit ago and had to turn back because of the snow and ice. This time I brought spikes and a headlamp for the end. The snow was at the beginning before but now it doesn’t start until after the look out. Then it doesn’t get bad until about halfway between there and the peak. I’d recommend spikes or snow shoes for that portion.

When the trail is open it’s one of the most breathtaking adventures. The trail goes up the canyon side and eventually on both sides of you there is a deadly drop off with beautiful views. Make sure to bring plenty of water and food. Hold onto the chains as you are going up. Watch out for snakes on the trail. Have fun at one of the most beautiful places on earth.

still quite a bit of ice packed spots once you get above the pipeline. a little tough for biking still.

this is a nice little hidden gem. about 45 minutes up is the end of the trail you do have to cross the river one or two times. Lots of rock so we're good hiking shoes but it is beautiful in it hugs the river the entire time. Highly recommend checking it out

River is very full with runoff. Looking forward to summer when it’s not so high and dangerous for the kids.

went up in early spring. trail was pretty clear untill you get to the clearing at the base of the hill that the woodpile is on. we ended up going to the right, which ended up being a bit of an adventure. takes you all the way to the back of the mountain, we came up and over from the backside and then found the trail at the top. The much shorter and much easier and correct trail is to the left in a series of switchbacks right on up to the woodpile. super fun morning hike. ended up having a little picnic at the clearing when we got back down.
