NileGuide Expert tip:
The springs are fairly popular and can be crowded during weekends and summer months. For more privacy visit the springs during weekdays or later in the evening.
What better way to relax after a day of mountain biking, spring skiing, or sight-seeing in Salt Lake City than unwinding in a natural hot spring with an incredible waterfall backdrop. Fifth Water hot springs are great to visit anytime of the year and provide a variety of soaking temperature, with the hottest pools closest to the waterfall. You can also cool off in the free flowing river adjacent to the pools.
The springs are located near Spanish Fork, Utah about 45 miles south of Salt Lake City. To find the springs follow the 2.5-mile trail from the Three Forks Trailhead in Diamond Fork Canyon to an impressive series of natural and man-made pools.
