Awesome hike great views and trails. The history of the place of fun too. Couldn't find actual hot springs that you can go in but there was a few springs that were shooting out hot water and sulfur smell. Overall I think it's a great place to explore because of all the different routes and trails you can connect to.

Very nice hike. Surprising lush and wet for the 1st half (hiked counter-clockwise). Followed trail signs, but definitely didn't do hike shown on the map. Trail doesn't really deviate away from the creek once on it, so I'm not sure what that westward loop portion of the trail is. Trail is not marked well in that innumerable other unmarked trails cross it and can be a bit confusing where to go at some junctures. The water in the creek at the head waters really is hot and very sulfur laden.
