day hike-slow pace to hot springs in spanish fork canyon

Donnie Benson and Petra Brittner are co-organizing their favorite hike to the 5th Water Hot Springs also known as the Spanish Fork Canyon Hot Springs. The gate one mile from the trailhead is now closed which adds another two miles to the hike for a total distance of 6.5 miles. We can't predict the amount of snow fall in mid-January; please be prepared to bring spikes/crampons or even snow shoes if you like. We are allowing for a 45min. soak in the hot springs. Please consider packing a robe for your comfort when you exit the hot springs.
