Trip Report: Family Hike to Diamond Fork Canyon Hot Springs

Family Hike to Diamond Fork Canyon Hot Springs
By Petra Brittner
HIKE 10/20/2019 NTD

We were literally laughing all the way to the hot springs during this fun hike with Judith, Pat, and Petra. We set out from the trailhead at 9:00 am sharp and leisurely hiked the two and one half mile stretch one way. Once we arrived at the steaming pools, we quickly changed into our bathing suits and slipped into the soothing, warm waters. The snow all around us added to the ambiance of sitting in a cozy pool of water while the outside temperature remained steady at below freezing. We spent much more time soaking in the pool than we had originally planned, but it was too good to leave. Truth be told, nobody was eager to change back into their clothes in the freezing temps. The hike back to the trailhead seemed very short as we conversed about how much fun we had. The trail was mostly dry, and other than the occasional cow walking along side of us, was free of obstacles. More hikes to the hot springs are planned for the near future, so please check the activity calendar for dates. You don't want to miss out on this adventure.
