I went to the manby hot springs on September 3-5 that was a beautiful place. It was a bit of a hike to get to them well worth the hike. They where right on the Rio grade river gorge. I met people from all around the world there where a family of mountain sheep watching us. It was nice to... More

My wife, two sons, 5 and 13, and 14 year old nice made this little trek. It's pretty difficult to find and I really cant explain how..sorry. The hike once you get there is about 15 minutes through some moderately rocky terrain. A group of people show up when we did and we ALL shoved into the springs. Maybe 10... More

We enjoyed the hot springs - the hike is lovely and it is right next to the river. How can you go wrong? Be prepared for warm water (not hot) and 20 somethings down there. It was lovely but depends on if you like crowds in your hikes. This would be a GREAT place to bring a family though, and... More

Isolated. Immersed in nature. A lovely drive there past gorgeous houses with the backdrop of the Sangre de Cristos, a cool hike down to the perfect place to take in the Rio Grande. Go naked.

This place is a little rough to get to, due to the road being a dirt rd that can get pretty bumpy, also be aware it can get really muddy for the last half mile or so. I recommend 4x4 if you plan on going when the ground is soft. Went last weekend in Feb and with the snow melt... More

There are different hot springs in the world. What makes Manby special is their wild, untamed, uncivilized side. It takes some effort to get there, but the dramatic views of the Rio Grande Canyon and hot, natural water are undoubtedly a great reward. There's no entrance fee. There was nobody when we came there also. Not a single soul. Definitely... More

On a recent fall day my wife and I used Santa Fe as a starting point for a day trip to Taos. After touring the town and having lunch there, we headed to Manby Hot springs (20 minutes). The road as described by others wasn't too bad as was the 20 minutes hike down to the springs. When we arrived... More

There are three or four hot spring pools once you make it down the trail. Some were hotter than others but all were delightful. You can even dip into the river, from a nice beachy area, to get very cool/cold and get back into a pool's warmth. The trail was rocky but easy. I imagine it'd be tricky if it... More

Shelli R's directions are spot-on. Tune Drive (not Road) is very rough, especially the last half-mile; take it slow. We went with four adults and a young child with DS. We were lucky, in that we were alone there. Only a couple of guys coming down as we were going back up disturbed our solitude. The hike down from the... More
