The trail to the springs is barely over a mile but the forest is so beautiful that it takes longer than it should because of the scenery. Take your time and enjoy the 3D beauty of the old growth forest. The springs were awesome and about 100 degree F water! But they are crowded if even 10 people are there. Big blue birds will attack your backpack if you have food so keep it buttoned up. Also if you bring a water bottle bring it back out! There were a lot of abandoned shirts/bottles/sunglasses/etc which was a bummer to see at the springs. Pack it in, pack it out!

Nice hike through the temperate rainforest. The boardwalk is nice and the fresh beautiful the Hotsprings at the end are a real treat but they get busy fast and more then 10 people the place feels crowded go early.

Very nice and well maintained. It does take the 30minutes that your guide will suggest, hot springs are very unique!

Very nice trail! I've been there 2 times and still a beautiful place. Well conserved and easy trail (about 25 minutes one way). Don't forget your water and snacks as you might spend a good amount of time there and on the boat. the hot springs are just beautiful!

Amazing boardwalk through the rainforest to the hot springs. Came by boat, some stairs. Pack your water shoes if you’re headed to the hot springs, the rocks get pretty slippery.

Always amazing in any weather! Take an early morning tour to avoid crowds, especially in summer. Or camp at the Campground, stay at the InnChanter or Hotsprings Lodge in the village.

Nice boardwalk with great springs at the end. Lots of stairs on the boardwalk and some slippery rocks to get into the springs proper. Be prepared! Wear good shoes!
