Planned a trip to Seattle from Utah and mapped this as one of our quick stops en route to our final destination. It was awesome! Only a handful of people were there. I didn’t plan on getting on the water, but I ended up on it. It was great! My only advice is take some water or electrolyte drinks to keep you hydrated. The rocks are slippery as well just a heads up.

Not much of a hike. But who cares. The Hot Springs are the main event. Bring shoes to hike to a from the springs!

This is probably my favorite place ever! Just be careful on the rocks because they are slippery and several of us fell

Loved this Hot Springs! Very busy though, so if you are looking for something private, or with less traffic, this wouldn't be a great choice. Lots of pools to choose from! Some up top, and some below along the river.

I took my parents to these hot springs in July and had an awesome time. Very short easy hike to get to the springs which was great for the older folks. The springs are next to the river which is great for mixing the cold and hot water to get your desired temperature.

This is a beautiful spring located in a very nice campground along the Banks-Lowman highway. It is a short walk down to the river and a little bouldering to get to the good stuff. Early morning in the spring and fall is the best time to check it out. This spring is very popular. Remember to pack out all garbage and keep this area beautiful for future generations!
