We walked along this path today and it is a lovely area. We didn’t see any spot that looked like a hot spring spot, but I think the river is too high right now. So we continued on our stroll for another 1/2 mile along the beautiful meadow. We will try it again in a couple months!

It was busier than I expected but it is also directly off the road. You can make your own pools that mix hot spring water and river water. The river is very scenic especially if you build your pool further away from the bridge.

There was no trail to hike that led to the hot springs. The hot springs is right off the road on the other side of the bridge that crosses the river in Pine.

This is a wonderful place to hang out and relax. There are lots of campgrounds around. It's especially relaxing at night. Usually pretty calm, but can get very busy. Also it's fun to make up your own pools to get the temperature you really like.

Beautiful place to hangout and the drive there was scenic and well worth it.

This is one of my favorite hot springs. Beyond the beauty of the area, the hot springs are relatively natural still, with the water from the S. fork of the Boise River flowing through and creating natural pools of differing warmth. You'll see tons of wildlife here too. I don't think I've ever been in this area and NOT seen an elk.

We camped at Elks campground for 2 days. Nice serene place . Unfortunately a high fire warning zone.. There are couple of hot springs nearby. Most of the trails were closed it..
