The total round trip hike was only 1/2 mile. The river conditions were shallow and the current, while somewhat strong, was still accessible by young children without the use of a lifejacket. The sand is hot on bare feet, and the river has some rocky areas. I would bring water shoes for future use. The hot springs were very hot... 更多
Heed the warning that over sized vehicles can not pass on the road. The narrow road just adds a little excitement. The hot spring bath is old but the water is clear. It was interesting to see the old hotel and store from a busier day. After the hot spring we played in the RioGrande which was fun on a... 更多
It's a nice walk to the old Langford hot springs on the Rio Grande River, past a few old historic buildings. This is a well travelled path. You're more than likely going to share the path - and the bath - with a few other visitors. Yet, it's still enjoyable, and worth the visit.
I decided to take this hike after a long drive from Fort Stockton to the Rio Grande Village campground. I had no expectations. So I was all the more surprised when the hike from the campground (5.6 miles round trip) to the hot springs turned out to be absolutely amazing. Lots of great views of the Rio Grande, the Sierra... 更多
This short side trip and walk makes you think back to "who" all enjoyed the hot springs, who lived there along the Rio Grande over the many decades, who visited for medicinal purposes, who was the owner of the store and rooms for let, what inspired people groups to tarry there. There are petroglyphs on the rocks. This is a... 更多
If you're staying in Rio Grande Village, I suggest walking to the Hot Springs, and not driving because the hike is BEAUTIFUL! Wide open desert landscape, you're mostly up on a plateau, so you get great views of the Rio Grande the entire time. And the best part is, you arrive to the Hot Spring, which is a great reward... 更多
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
