No trail to be mentioned as the parking lot is only 20 yards from the hot springs, but the upper hot pools (dont recommend soaking in them 170+) is about a quarter mile walk up a small hill. Has a small vault toilet and a small campground further down the creek and across the road. Very hot water which is mixed with Worswick Creek which is very cold water in the lower "tubs". Losts of algae and the tubs keep getting "improved" but with a little effort a nice mix can be made and a very enjoyable soak can be had. No high concentrations of sulphur but can smell it occasionally. Not many people in the campground and most of them were playing in little smokey creek where the hot creeks dumps in, but found some idiot had camped right next to the pools the next morning so didnt get a morning soak which would have been good as it was lightly raining. The closest town is Fairfield about 18 miles away and the other end of the road winds up in Ketchum down warm springs road about 20 miles away.
