The 12 mile Hot Springs was a little hard to find but once we found the right road and entrance it was an easy walk in. The Hot Springs was crystal clear and it was incredibly relaxing. Marjorie and I had the place all to ourselves for about a 1/2 hour or so and 2 families showed up and joined us. Great people and the pool is large enough for a large crowd. The evenings are less family oriented and we will absolutely be back at this hot springs in the future.
Great hot springs, nice concrete pool that separates it from the cooler river, wonderful temperature and a great place to relax after a long drive.
Approachable by road, but for the last section you'll be doing a couple water crossings, so make sure to have a high clearance vehicle. If you don't, no worries, just park in the last large clearing before you hit the water crossing and walk about a quarter mile to get to the springs.
It's flowing into a large concrete pool a short ways past a broken down bridge. Watch out for free range cows (and cow poo!)
