The Hot Springs Trail is a relatively moderate 3 mile hike from the Daniel's Ranch Historic area in Rio Grande Village to the Hot Springs area. The hike starts with a steep climb to the ridge above the river, from there, the trail heads North and West while traversing several small side canyons before turning South to rejoin the river. The last part of the hike is an easy slope along the river down to the Hot Springs. The views from this portion of the trail are exceptional. The Hot Springs are located at the end of the trail. Return the way you came or arrange for a car shuttle back to the Daniel's Ranch parking area.
Be advised, there is no shade or water anywhere along the trail and temperatures can reach over 100 degrees F during the summer months.
This trail goes by Hot Springs.
There are parking areas available on both ends of this trail either at Daniel's Ranch or at the Hot Springs. The hike can be completed from either direction.
