“Beautiful canyon with hot springs, caves, waterfalls, steep canyon walls and nice view of the river.”— John Blackwell
The route follows the drainage, descending over several minor waterfalls as it makes its way toward a sizeable area of hot spring fed pools. The total distance on the out-and-back run to the pools is five miles with 800 feet of elevation gain on the return. The stretch of canyon past the pools going to the river is significantly more difficult, and there is one section where you have to pull yourself up a 6-foot rope.
Along the way, you'll come across waterfalls and hot springs and the trail ends at the Colorado River.
