Nature tripsGreat!Muddy

Beautiful hot spring and easy to get to! There are 3 or 4 small pools, the largest is the hottest with temperatures of 107 degrees Fahrenheit where the water comes out I was told. It also has a tube to vacuum out the bottom (using gravity, starting the process just like you would sucking gasoline through a tube) and spouts to drain the water that are plugged by the bottom of aluminum cans. It can fit about 8 people comfortably. Camping is good right along the creek at the start of the trail, but the lot is small and easy to miss, it’s right on a corner. Half of the cars parked there appeared to be campers vs soakers. Definitely worth the trip!

HikingGreat!

Short and easy a little less then a mile long. There's a small incline the first 5 minutes and then flat and easy after that. Highly recommend for a trail run or if you want a nice pretty nature walk. Worth checking out.

CampingGreat!

Me and a group of friends go out to this area and set up camp along the river once every year, and every year is a memorable experience. Hiking, Fishing, clean mountain air, and breatgtaking scenery, can't waint until next year!

WalkingGreat!

This is a very easy loop trail walking in the woods. When you hit a small open area it’s a pleasant surprise. The information signs did a good job explaining the importance of periodic naturally occurring wildfires.

Underrated! A fun and interesting little interpretive hike with hot springs, old trees, and a prairie dog town.

Hiking

Nice easy hike. 3 pools that I saw. The upper pool is the best imo. Quite a bit smaller than the middle pool. The middle pool seemed too hot for me and my hiking partner. The lower pool is small and had quite a bit of silt in the bottom. I'm not sure why people aren't mentioning just how slippery the rock is between the pools. I'm a pretty surefooted person but both me and my partner slipped and fell on our butts a few times. Rock is covered with a slimy algae of some sort. BE CAREFUL!

Beautiful small but steep hike up trail to Amazing views in warm springs. Both tubs are small only fit about 10 people total. Another 5 people maybe with lower pool when creek is low. Well worth the trek. Serene natural beauty.

We hiked this trail today and I will warn anyone intending to make this trek: it is treacherous in the winter and yaktrax/ spikes are a near necessity. Yes, the trail to the hot spring is only half a mile long, but it was completely covered in packed down snow and became a solid sheet of ice angled toward the riverbed. Luckily, my partner and I were both wearing yaktrax and were able to make it to the hot springs without incident. However, we saw several other people in hiking boots slipping and sliding, and saw one man slide down the side of the cliff. All of this being said, the hot springs are picturesque, roomy, and the perfect temperature for a long soak. It was well worth the journey. I would just reccomend that anyone attempting this hike in the winter prepare accordingly.

Hiked this on Mother’s Day - trail was in good condition and dry. Weir Creek along the trail is going strong right now - very scenic hike and nice hot springs!

I went at the end of December. The hike was really easy and short. I would recommend some spikes in the winter but it's not a necessity. The pools were probably around 95-100. It was also heavily trafficked on a Friday afternoon.

My first time here and this is a great winter visit! Be prepared tho microspikes saved my toosh a few times. If you are going bring them! Doable without but my hiking partner hit the ground several times as did his dog. There are several pools but we arrived a little late and got the middle pool. Enough for 2-3 people of your friendly :). Rumors of cars being broken into at the trailhead so take precautions with your valuables.

Hiking

Weir Creek Hot Springs is a great way to spend the day. It’s only .7 of a mile to the Springs but it is ALL uphill except for the last .1 of a mile. So I’d say it’s a moderate hike even though it’s short. Like everywhere else in Idaho, clothing IS optional, so there will be naked people here; myself and my wife included if we are there. Lol. That being said, everyone, clothed or not is polite and respectful and there are a lot of conversations going on and people just enjoy themselves in general here! Definitely worth the day trip or half day! Go!

Nice secluded spot, at least it was back in 2014. Not sure how it's held up.

Beautiful country and views but very steep for second mile in. It’s approximately two in and two out, not marked at all as none of the other lakes really are in this area. Mosquitos were absolutely awful, even with spray.

Hiking

the trail head Starts as a four-wheeler trail and then when you start your decent to the lake the trail disapears and it is extreamly steep to get down to the lake, my goal was to fish but due to the lack of good equipment of my partner we decided to stop before she slipped and broke something looking at this trail you would think you could make the hike in 2-3 hours but if you plan on camping and have a heavy pack (like I did) give yourself 6 hours to scale down to the lake. I'm not one to give up so I'll be back and fish this lake but know this is a hard 4 mile hike.

Hiking
First to Review

We hiked this with our 4 kids 7-2-18. The drive to the trailhead took about 1 hour from Kelly Forks work center. The road requires a high-clearance vehicle due to many ruts. Plenty of parking at Trailhead. The initial trail (176) was easy to follow. We could easily see Pete Ott and Ice Lake from above. The sign on the trail where you need to turn off said Elizabeth Lake (440-445) which is beyond Pete Ott & Ice Lake. As we headed down the hill to the lakes it became difficult to keep track of the trail due to snow. So we did not go all the way to the lakes. There was a lot of snow & ice visible in Ice Lake.

Fishing

I hiked this a few years ago with my dad and it began my love for hiking. You are constantly hiking above and next to the creek which makes for a pleasant view the entire hike even though there is no much tree cover so bring sunscreen. Not a hard hike at all even with all the weight my dad and I brought along with my two uncles. We camped about halfway in a meadow that you really can't miss, I forget the name of it but it is where the Cayuse Creek joins Kelly Creek. Fishing near here is phenomenal and will probably stay that way because of its relative obscurity.
