Would be better if partiers would clean up. Been there twice where I soaked in the evening. I got out as more people showed up. In the am both times, I went back and the place was trashed. Bottles, bathing suits, and crushed styrofoam coolers. If you go, don't be an idiot and clean up. Please no glass!!

Really cool rural springs. I stayed there two hours this morning and had it all to myself. Really beautiful. Water was a bit murky but not bad.

Like others have said...not recommended. It is a short hike to the hot springs but the water looks nasty. There was one person in the hot spring when I went to check out the area, he looked homeless and high on something. Since AllTrails does not have a way to communicate with other outdoor enthusiast, I can be reached on Facebook Messenger if you have any questions.

known for homeless people bathing. tried to go more than once thinking maybe its the day. no such luck. right off the road maybe 50 yards. hard to judge wouldnt recommend flip flops without backs but id consider it a very easy hike (walk) 5 minutes to get to the springs from the road.

Not worth it if you are looking to relax. Pay the 25 bucks unless you like cussing beer drinking pot smoking loud people.

this is local party place. if they would respect the place and clean up their trash it would be nice. the spring itself is hot and smells of sulphur. I did try it out despite the trash. go at your own risk.
