Hot Springs Canyon Trail Professional Review and Guide

"This is a trail up a narrow valley with access to Cottonwood Peak.

Follow the trail (753) as it climbs past piñon pine and juniper then up the canyon before narrowing beyond a small meadow. The trail becomes harder to follow but mainly continues up the valley along the left side of the creek as the valley curves left (north) up to the tree line."
