Nothing is more amazing than finding hidden treasures, especially ones with lots of history. We think the best gems can be found in nature, like these hot springs in Arizona. They were actually part of an old resort and are now a local favorite.\nThe Verde Hot Springs can be found in Payson, Arizona, and the hike there is only about three miles round trip. The Verde Hot Spring trail can be used for hiking, nature viewing, photography and more. You can even bring your pet if they remain on a leash.\nThe dirt road leading to the trail is long and may require a high clearance vehicle, so plan accordingly. You'll also need to cross the river to reach the hot springs during your hike. The best part is that you don't need a permit to hike here!\nView this post on Instagram Soaking it up at Verde Hot Springs outside the awesome little town of Camp Verde, Arizona. This place is magical ✨ 💜 #hotspringjunkies 📷: @plourdejesse A post shared by Meagan 🌺 (@wildheart_roam) on Apr 20, 2018 at 12:24pm PDT\nThe main hot spring on the cliffside overlooks the Verde River and the water is about 98 degrees. It's the perfect spot to relax after your hike. You and your friends can sit comfortably because the pool can fit many people.\nAs you make your way down to the hot spring along the mountainside there will be a sign saying "Nudity Not Prohibited." All we can say is that you might see some people in the nude there.\nView this post on Instagram . most importantly #love like it's the only thing you know how at the end of the day all this means nothing this page where you're sitting your degree your job the money nothing even matters except love and human connection who you loved and how deeply you loved them . . . . . #rupikaur #justlove #loveyoutothemoonandback #loveandwildhearts #loveyouforever #nolimitsbabe #youareeverything #justyou #adventuretogether #exploreaz #arizona #arizonalife #arizonabound #moodygrams #instagramaz #igsouthwest #naturalarizona #weekendvibes #allthefeels #arizonacollective #verdehotsprings #hotsprings #hippieshit #arizonaisgorgeous #explorearizona #thegreatsw #azculture #desertlife A post shared by ✨Andrea Danks✨ (@ourbungalowlife) on Nov 26, 2017 at 12:05pm PST\nThese abandoned hot springs don't have restrooms or water so be sure to bring your own. If the water is too warm you can take a dip in the river, if conditions permit.\nThis relatively easy hike is perfect for a weekend trip or even a daytime one. You and your friends can enjoy the Arizona weather while relaxing in the water.\nView this post on Instagram It took all day, but we made it! #verdehotsprings #wanderers A post shared by Maggie 💋 (@beautyqueen86) on Apr 13, 2018 at 6:36pm PDT\nVerde Hot Springs\nPrice: Free\nLocation: Payson, AZ\nWhy you should go: This cool hike takes you to the remains of an old resort with hot springs.
