No where near elk city. So don't be confused. The trail was moderate, some steep places not for the light of heart it's a little over 5 miles each way. It was a good day trip took 6 hours with a hour or so at the hot spring. We went early and it was warm coming back but sooo beautiful. Light traffic looked like quiet a few people had gone in camping over the weekend. Soo beautiful. Worth the Hike!

Not a hard hike. Lots of exposure so I wouldn't recommend doing it in the heat of the day. The hot springs are beautiful and worth it!

Great hike and wonderful hot springs! Spring 2017 June 3rd river crossing is partially washed out, but we crossed by very carefully stepping into the river and holding onto logs. I uploaded a picture of the washed out part of the crossing so you can get a sense of what it looks like. Some people we met at the crossing had dogs and didn't cross due to concerns about getting them over/back. Additionally, a couple we passed on the way out to the trailhead was going to add a rope to the crossing to improve it. Don't know if they were successful, or if there are official plans for improving the river crossing. We were able to make it, but cross at your own risk until it is improved. Don't want to scare anyone away, it's worth it!

The hike up to the hot springs was difficult but well worth it. The scenery and the views are awe inspiring and the hot springs are amazing and well worth the long trek uphill.

This road is usually not open until July or later due to the snowpack.

We sat in the middle spring at night and a moose came down to the lower spring and drank water. It was awesome. My friend what should we do? I am naked! Not running from a moose in the dark naked....we all became one with nature and sat quietly until she walked away.

There is a river of death to get to it a couple of college kids not knowing what they were doing came in with cotton clothes couldn't get a fire started and lost a sleeping bag in the river of death. Got rain and snow and hail and every once in a while a spot of sun. good hike but if ur inexperienced i'ld go with someone that knows what they are doing. The hot springs are amazing and make it worth crossing the river of death.
