Absolutely beautiful hotspring. made it almost all the way in a Subaru, parked then walked the rest of the way. Had to walk through a bit of a water at one point. Tons of trash of course because we as people don't like to keep things beautiful. But still well worth it, hotspring was amazing and area was beautiful.

Water at the spring was 96F today. Was a pretty walk, but human activity has made the spring feel dirty. Cans, cigarette butts, a couple tents, sleeping bags, clothes, socks all in the water. We didn’t get in.

Beautiful place, unfortunately the path was blocked by a creek and tge bridge was messed up so we couldn't even get to the hot springs

Great easy hike with cattle scrutinizing our every step. Using your Directions button with Google Map made finding the trail head very easy.

Good place to go just hangout and get into the water at. It’s even more fun when you bring alcohol and a few friends. But remember PICK UP AFTER YOURSELVES. This place is owned to a man who is kind enough to let everyone come onto his property for this hot spring. We wouldn’t want a few to ruin it for everyone.

Maps made this easy to find. There are several potholes along the dirt road stay on the high road. Large pool was wonderful.

The 12 mile Hot Springs was a little hard to find but once we found the right road and entrance it was an easy walk in. The Hot Springs was crystal clear and it was incredibly relaxing. Marjorie and I had the place all to ourselves for about a 1/2 hour or so and 2 families showed up and joined us. Great people and the pool is large enough for a large crowd. The evenings are less family oriented and we will absolutely be back at this hot springs in the future.

Great hot springs, nice concrete pool that separates it from the cooler river, wonderful temperature and a great place to relax after a long drive. Approachable by road, but for the last section you'll be doing a couple water crossings, so make sure to have a high clearance vehicle. If you don't, no worries, just park in the last large clearing before you hit the water crossing and walk about a quarter mile to get to the springs. It's flowing into a large concrete pool a short ways past a broken down bridge. Watch out for free range cows (and cow poo!) Have fun!
