Parking is available at an unmarked pullout, the hot spring is on the opposite side of the river from there. Walk down to the river and try to find a place to cross. USE CAUTION when crossing, as water levels vary. There are other hot springs in the area worth checking out, and the pools at this spring may be underwater at certain times of year, so do not attempt to cross if you are not confident that you can do so safely. The spring is under a cube shaped rock and about 102 degrees. While this spring is very close to the highway, the boulder that sits in the river beside the spring will shield you from noise. Park at the unmarked turnout, after keeping your eyes open for a large diamond-shaped boulder at the turnout's eastern end, and look out at the river. Just downriver you will see a large boulder jutting out of the river with two lower boulders exposed above the water's surface. If these smaller boulders are not visible, the river level will be is high for the hot pool to be soakable. This is best visited during the dry summer months.

Haven't been there BUT:
Between the fact that it's right on a very cold river, to the lack of photo of the actual hot springs to a few people who say they couldn't find it - I don't think there's an actual hot anything to be found here...

Went there last week and was unable to locate it due to my uncertainty of my footing. Though the river is low, it is still very dangerous.

Lol so I went late may and it was flooded. Couldnt reach them. Me and my friends wandered the entire side of the mountain looking for them for a couple hours. That was pretty fun but sadly no hotsprings

I'm not sure if it's because the water is up so high but you can only walk maybe 200ft then the real runs into a big boulder.

Didn't go to far down the trail. Beautiful view and the hot springs are nice. The water is moderate temperature but feels pretty great after hopping in the river during winter lol
