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

Taking a 4 mile dirt road trip was a little challenge for a city car, but it was worthy. Roughly 20 minute hike will take you down to the river where you can soak in if its not too busy. If lucky, you will meet...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.
