Fifth Water Hot Springs, Utah is a treat for adventurers. There will be a couple of miles driving down a well-maintained dirt road, and a hike that’s easy and accessible for everyone. But, once you’re there, you can bask in the majesty of natural waterfalls and hot springs.

And though it’s a pretty easy hike, it is still advisable to wear hiking shoes and appropriate clothing.

The hike is about 2.5 miles so you can expect about 3 hours of trailhead your way (depending on your speed). The trail is relatively flat, and it has narrow areas, but it’s a rewarding trail. There are minimal inclines, and the routes are well-maintained. You will even encounter clear paths surrounded by trees.

As a famous hot springs destination, you can expect a couple of groups joining in during the weekends. Though there’s no hotel accommodation in the area, people still love going here to camp out at night.

The Fifth Water Hot Springs are relatively warmer than the other natural hot springs in Utah. Especially if there’s a crowd, you can expect the water to be less than 100 degrees. However, if you go near the two waterfalls, the water becomes hotter.

The pools overflow through these streams where you can also enjoy a foot soak. There’s a series of man-made pools that are designed to create smaller chunks of spaces so the crowd can enjoy a little bit of privacy.


Fifth Water Hot Springs could be a magical outdoors experience for you and your family. However, visiting the pools, you need to make sure you’re prepared for the wildlife too. It has been noted that the area has rattlesnakes. If you don’t have the expertise to deal with them, it’s not advisable to spend a camping night. Others also recommended that you bring a lot of water if you can. Soaking in the hot spring for long hours can be dehydrating.
