This hot springs is by Potosi campground. The trail is easy to follow. Amazing star gazing opportunities. If you don't have a vehicle with access to cross the creek, you'll have to walk across. Bring bear spray.

This hot springs is back by Potosi campground. I hiked the trail at midnight a few days ago (end of May). The trail was easy to follow and pretty easy, I'm sure very easy in the daylight. It was amazing at night. We had the spring to ourselves and sat in the dark with a crystal clear night sky. Amazing star gazing opportunity. If you don't have a vehicle with access to cross the creek, you'll have to walk across. We did this late at night and it was pretty cold, but manageable. Be careful! Also, you are in MT, bring some bear spray.
