Points of Interest

1. Three Forks Trailhead

Turn off Diamond Fork Road at the Three Forks Trailhead. Cross over the culvert and park in the gravel parking area.

2. Do NOT Cross This Footbridge

3. One Place to Camp

There are several locations for primitive camping near fifth water hot springs. This spot is near the parking area but secluded from view. It is close to the river and very pretty. The only downside is that it has lots of rocks, so it's not very comfortable to sleep on the ground. I would bring an air mattress for sure.

4. Cross the Footbridge

This is the junction of Sixth Water Creek and Fifth Water Creek.

5. Lower Springs

6. Upper Springs

7. Waterfall
