This is a short trail to the historic Miracle Hot Springs. The hot springs vary in temperature and the original baths have been removed, but makeshift baths can be found.
well maybe I am an idiot and couldn't find the trail head but the only turn out I could find near these coordinates was fenced off for as far as the eye can see and the stream was, you guessed it dry as a bone. perhaps it's because the springs are dry or because of the road work, but all I do know is this trail was a bust for me.
It was nice and serene, if you are going for the hot springs, you will be disappointed. The actually old tubs have been filled in and there's only one makeshift pool that was pretty tiny. No bigger than for two people. I was alone and had a great time, but for those of you who aren't alone, you might want to think of someplace else to go.
There are a couple areas with pools. There are the main pools that are an easy walk from the road, and there are some lesser pools a little further downstream, which are less established, slightly harder to get to and find.
The main pools have (last time I was there) 3 different pools of 3 different temperatures. The lesser pools have one rather hot pool above the lower, shallow pool.
