There is really no hiking for this one. You can drive right up to the hot springs. The hot springs are pretty awesome though. There are 2 man made pools that are cleaned atleast once a week. The pools are about 10 ft X 5 ft. There are male/female restrooms and changing rooms. Well kept and clean. Also a fire pit and tables. No glass bottles allowed but no rules against alcohol. Sharkey Hot Springs is closed every Wednesday morning for its weekly cleaning and maintenance.

The hot springs was easy to get to and was very clean. Only one other car was present while I was there. The water was comfortably warm and clean, but was not hot. Since I enjoy hotter soaks, it was a slight disappointment, but at about 103 degrees, it was still a pleasure. A side trip would be a drive of about 15 miles up the mountain to the pass wehere Lewis and Clark first entered what is not Idaho.
