Getting There

Snowshoe trail from Highway 21 to hot springs on Warm Springs Creek, near the Sawtooth Wilderness.

The camping facilities are closed in winter.

Depending on the snow level and how recently it has fallen, snowshoes may not be necessary. This trail is well traveled enough that it can be packed down and hiked in sturdy, waterproof boots. Don't forget to bring a towel!

From Lowman, drive 18.8 miles east on Highway 21. On the north side of the highway is a turn off for Forest Road 025RC, which services the nearby Warm Springs Cattle Guard Station and Warm Springs Creek Airstrip. The road is closed, but a parking area is cleared. Park here and put on your snowshoes, then walk parallel to the highway for about a quarter of a mile. Turn north onto Forest Road 025SUB, which leads to Bonneville Hot Springs Campground. (It may be possible to park here depending on snow level). From there, the trail follows the campground road north for about 1.2 miles and is well signed.

Little crowded, but still enjoyable. Pretty location to go soak.

First to Review

I snowshoed in to the hot springs in February. There was a lot of snow, but the trail was packed down hard enough that just boots were enough to walk sturdily. Its an easy, scenic trail with a few pools for soaking that are always less crowded than the nearby Kirkham Hot Springs, which is right off of Highway 21. Definitely worth checking out, especially in the winter.
