The road out to the hot springs is rather rough. We made it most of the way with a Subaru Legacy then walked the rest of the way to the beginning of the hike to the springs. Beautiful hike. The hot springs are clothing optional....More

really rough road to get there, the springs are at the bottom of the canyon and the trail starts at the top. not very deep or very hot, but still better than paying 38 bucks for ojo caliente.

It took a while to find the location. Go north past the light at the intersection of 522 and 64. Stay on 522 for a few miles and turn west on B-007. At the T in the road, turn left. The road from there is...More

A comfortable warm spring - water in the high 80s. Also known as Stagecoach Springs because of the remnants of the stone stagecoach bridge that crossed the river at this spot. Wear your hiking shoes to get here - plenty of places along this trail...More

springs access. Turn on Tune RD(near airport) says private road but as long as you respect the speed limit of 25 MPH you should be OK. It's a wash-board road so unless it's been graded recently it will be a rough ride, though any car...More

There are some very good reasons to see this spot: -The remote canyon offers some beautiful landscapes. -The rarity of hot springs that have not been commercialized. -The opportunity to have the freedom to do what you want without paying to dip. -There is a...More

Black Rocks in Arroyo Hondo are better Manby is not as hot as Black Rocks With that said, I have not been to Manby in the winter. Its also a slightly longer and more challenging hike down to the pools from the parking area.
