Went there twice. The first was at midnight to see the stars which were absolutely gorgeous. We then drove out early in the morning the next day to reach around 6.30am where the air was chilly but the hot springs were still rocking it at a solid 40 degrees celcius. Sat around and watched the sunrise (or just the sky... 更多
This is a great spot to enjoy a relaxing time in a hot spring. Uniquely situated right on the Rio Grande, it is a short walk from parking area. The road is a bit tight but not difficult to navigate - did so in a mid size car. You can do it!
As others have said, this drive is quite harrowing. It is narrow and bumpy with cliffs all around and what looks like crumbling rock. At the end of the road you can get out and walk past the historic spa buildings and on to the hot springs farther down the trail. We were here in October hoping for cooler weather... 更多
Very short hike to the hot springs but to get to the trailhead you take a very scary drive down a narrow road with a huge cliff one one side and huge mountain on the other. We were in a truck so it felt like there was no room for us on the road. But once you get past that... 更多
This is a must see in the park. The drive is a little scary getting there especially if you have a big vehicle. It is a short walk to the hot spring but there is a longer loop. My only complaint is that is was very crowded. It is a popular spot and not a lot of parking. Apparently you... 更多
Another must do in BBNP! My only complaint was that is was really crowded - lots of different ages of people. Best time to go would probably be first thing in the morning or late into the evening. The trail is pretty easy to walk along - flat and not long walk at all. The parking is terrible - very... 更多
We visited the Hot Springs area while visiting Big Bend NP.with our kids (11, 9, 5). The area it is in is in the FAR SE corner of the park in the Rio Grande Village area. The little spur road that goes to it is not for everyone or every vehicle. The road is VERY narrow at parts. It is... 更多
I didn't have time to sit in it all day, but the little that I did I bathed in the 105 degree water. I came out feeling like I was 18 again. I piratically sprinted back to the car. This is a must do if you are in the area.
It isn't Big Bend without the Rio Grande, and one of the unique things (of many) along the Rio Grande is the geothermal activity. Thanks to a failed resort (1909) and the hard work of whomever excavated the stone to create a square shallow tub, this is a relaxing & downright enjoyable 'for free' spa. From the parking lot, it's... 更多
We traversed the slightly treacherous but well built stone road to the parking lot where it warns you of frequent car break-ins. The petroglyphs and other markings on the historic deserted buildings were interesting, but the path to the springs was not well marked. We walked but never found them, only to meet a park ranger at our next stop... 更多
