About This Trail

[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]

The Hot Springs are awesome all year round and one of the best places to chill out during the winter! The water is just got enough to feel amazing and escape from the cold. This place is public and not supervised, closes from 10pm – 6am and police have been known to enforce it.

Pulling in to the parking lot, just take the first pathway which goes out past the bathrooms. Follow it for about 10 minutes and you will see the pool on the left. It’s really easy to access and the hike is a quick walk. You can explore or hang out here for hours; the water is less smelly than most hot springs and it doesn’t get too crowded. Weekends do tend to get more crowded than weekdays.

You can get some awesome views of the sunset as well. If you go in the winter, make sure you take a backpack to keep all your stuff in. It’s also a good to have a tarp to lay your stuff on because it can get very muddy around hot springs.

I’m Joey Johnson Branch Ambassador for Utah County. I’m happily married to Jory for 21 years and Proud Mama of two, Jack who would’ve been 12 and our rainbow baby, Jiraiya Dragon who is nearly 5. We’re from Utah but have lived in Arizona for 10 years and then New Zealand before returning to our roots when Jiraiya shocked us with his arrival.

We started hiking with Hike it Baby in May 2015 when I struggled to find a playgroup that we fit in. Within two months I became a BA for SLC but after all the driving back and forth from Provo I decided it was time to create HIB Utah County. The first 6 months was mostly just me and a friend but then they started joining us! Now we have an amazing group of regulars and we continue to get new faces all the time! I’m currently hosting twice weekly “Hike and Play Nature School”, my version or Forest Preschool but leans more towards unschooling, as it simply consists of Hiking and Free Play while parents try to stay as hands off as possible.

As my son ages out of HIB, I’m hoping to guide our branch back to it’s roots with getting Mamas and Babies out while offering hikes for families with school aged kids as well.
