A short, fairly easy hike through moss covered trees leads to a series of hot springs scattered throughout the woods. The water is a great temperature, there is camping in the area (with permits), and there is a chance for a secluded soak depending on which pool you choose to soak in.

I've been here before and it was a nice easy hike. The only downfall was the trail was paved most of the way.

The road is closed right now though, so you won't be able to get to the trailhead unless you walk from the Madison Falls trailhead which will add about 3.5 miles to your hike. I hope the road opens soon!

Great hike for all skill levels. Hot springs are a nice break when you get up to them and people have put rocks around them so people can decide to sit and dip their feet or get in and relax. We did this hike with our 1 year old and 3 year old and they did really well and enjoyed the hot springs.

wonderful 5 mile round trip day hike to the springs. my skin is so soft now that I am home! Each pool was busy, don't expect to have a pool to yourself! Get friendly! It's well worth the hike. trail is pretty muddy at the moment. suggest waterfront boots. Our visit was 03/28/15 cost $15.00 for a parking pass, good for 7 days to the national parks. Purchased at the Ranger Station via pay envelope.

Nice, easy short hike. A few sketchy spots w/ rockslides. Nice campground close to springs & beautiful shire type fields to explore, can go on to Appleton pass, High Devide & beyond. Hot Springs are stinky but the top one was really very nice, hot!

Beautiful falls and a very easy hike, 5 miles seems too long though in the description. Minimal elevation gain (260 feet). There are definitely better hikes in the area, but if you have time you won't have a bad time here
