Easy, beautiful trail down to the hot springs. The road leading to the trailhead is a bit rough, but it's manageable if you take it slow.

Great trail down to the springs which are right next to the river. I was there April 2014.

Very scenic springs. On an old wagon road. Also the site of the springs in "Easy Rider". Take Tune road all the way out to the Dobson House sign and stay left. About a half mile later the road will dead end into a parking lot (unless you have a high clearance vehicle). Anyhow this is where you want to park. Keep all valuables out of sight. This lot is notorious for break-ins.

Don't trust google maps getting there. Be sure to go directly to trailhead. That's your only real access. The trail in is nice and easy. keep an eye out for bighorns and petroglyphs. The pools are roomy, with three options at different temperatures. Well worth the time and effort. Expect company and enjoy the river.
