I got lost a couple of times cause there's no set trail. It's definitely an adventurers delight. Even so. I made it up in 25min & down in 15min.

If it's hot out, this will be a slightly difficult hike, however the springs are well worth it. It is paradise.

Great trail for a quick hike and workout. Good views of all the surrounding mountains and Apple Valley Airport. The trailhead starts in a wash adjacent to the parking area. There are a row of rocks about 10' long leading the way that give you no doubt you are on the trail. I say this as my first time out I missed the trailhead and ended up following some smaller game trails that ended going straight up the mountain in a very loose and sharp scrabble - not recommended! Make sure you have very sturdy shoes/boots. I made it to the top and back in about 1:15. If you have younger kids between 5-10 add another hour or two as some of the rock scrambles and the steep climbs will take some extra time - not to mention fun. Just watch for Rattle Snakes in the warmer parts of the year. Much thanks to the builders and maintainers.

Very wonderful hike. Lots of hills. Don't go with your sister or other relatives unless you don't mind seeing them naked. Bring water and you will have to ford the creek to get to the hot spring.

This hike and swim is a very rewarding experience. Good 40 min hike down to the hot springs and about 45-50 mins back up. There is butt nekkedness since it is a semi nudist spot but if you can get past that youll be fine. 4 hot spring pools and one good size swimhole. Take water as it is an open sunny terrain. 5 dollars a person to park at ranch and 10 to overnight.

Just did this hike today. The views it provides are great. It is steep with loose sharp rocks towards the top. Not to impressed with how the trail is marked or actually lack of markings.

One hour, up and down. Well maintained, well delineated trail. Steep in places with loose gravel. Recommend trekking poles for the descent. Beware of shooters and snakes. Watch the video here: http://youtu.be/JloprgtsCZs
