Update: Jan 1st. Due to heavy rains the springs weren't warm, we had to huddle over the vent for the water to be warm enough. The trail was a flowing stream at times and deep mud puddles. The access area was full and busy. Reminder: LNT, pack it in pack it out. Update Jan 3: Thanks to whoever re directed the stream. went back today and springs were closer to Their regular warmth.

HikingGreat!Muddy

Great hot springs but there are some things to consider. The road was fine on our 4x4 truck, saw some Subarus in the parking lot as well. Trail was only 10-15 minutes and pretty muddy. We shared the pool with one other group wearing masks and it was very pleasant. I would definitely come up on a weekday morning if you want the privacy. Like other reviewers, we noticed a lot of trash and tried to pick some up on our way out! There was a chatty local that had started a bonfire at the parking lot on our way out. Drive out is simply stunning!

Hotsprings were amazing, had it to ourselves for 30 minutes. Very light snow and the road wasn't the worst i've been on. Only about .25mile to reach the hotsprings.

Great!

The only complaint I have is that my husband and I picked up tons of trash on our way in.. The road is unmanaged but not anything that my Outback couldn't handle. Even after lowering my car about 5 inches, it wasn't as bad as some other people are saying. (We have experience driving off road) There were only about 3 groups of people and everyone was very respectful.

i saw a few recent comments that made me fearful of driving up with the road being too full of potholes, yet I had no problem in my Subaru Impreza Outback! the pot holes were no worse than they usually are this time of year. i did not go up to the spring this time around but went rock hunting for baker blues down the other trail to swift creek. we usually go for a soak afterwards but by the time we were done, the parking lot had filled up.

The road to the springs is 4 miles of unmanaged forest road full of tons of large pot holes. I drive a Subaru Crosstrek and found it difficult to drive on this road. Once you arrive you come to a large turnout parking lot with a sign on the right leading you to the springs. It’s about 1/4 mile up. Very easy to walk there. When we arrived there were 15 people very close together not wearing masks—Drinking and dominating the springs. The springs is not very big. Could hold 7-10 people comfortably, but not with 6 ft of social distancing. The water was black, steaming, and hot! Looked really cool. Smelled like sulfur. This place is full of high school and college kids, along with some families. If you go, go super early. Don’t go late as we ran into the law enforcement and found out there was a tweaked out guy threading people the night before we showed up. Sheriff also mentioned that technically this place should be shut down due to high quantities of harmful bacteria, but apparently people don’t care (according to the cops).

Nature tripsGreat!

For a hot springs, the trail and area wasn’t that bad. Usually I encounter a lot of trash to clean up. There were only some piles of toilet paper and clothing items left. The springs itself is a great temp and the sulfur is not as overpowering as some I’ve been to like East Lake in the Newberry Caldera. I went early, before 7am and had it to myself. Back at the car, a local pulled up. He was nice but asked a lot of questions. Like everyone is saying, the road is trash. Probably one of the worst roads I’ve been on. It was almost a deterrent. You’ll want an SUV high clearance vehicle. The more rugged the better.

I found the smell of sulfur to be like egg. However, it can apparently be beneficial for the skin to have the natural gas to remove dead skin, work against acne, dermatitis, etc. I recommend searching for more benefits beforehand. I wish I had because then I’d dive in head first.

HikingGreat!

Directions on this site clear, stay to right at each fork but easy to get back there. Road was rough with large ruts. Couple bridges see the wood on them but looked solid. Visited midday on a Wednesday - still about 6 people hanging around, everyone respectful-polite. Brought teenager and 20 yr old and even had pool to ourselves for about an hour. Water is bath temp with couple warmer spots, cold creek right next to it (trickle but felt good on feet after soaking). Hotspring water energetically very calming. Boys were very quiet on drive back out. Good times!

Muddy. Hot springs were wonderful. Would not bring children!!!!!!!! Lots of nude men, they told us they frequent the springs. They are not safe around kids. Not appropriate.

Short very muddy walk to hot springs. Not family friendly, nudist and those with suits on, but be prepared if you bring kids. Hot springs smelled strong like sulfur but was really fun and relaxing. pretty busy for a rainy late afternoon. LOTS of potholes on the drive!!!!!

Rainy when we went, the road is very bumpy and full of potholes so drive with caution. The trail was pretty muddy but only about a 5 minutes walk to the hot springs from the parking lot. The hot spring doesn’t smell the best but the experience cool!

Great hot spring day trip spot. Hang left on 1330 than take a right at both the forks. watch out for POTHOLES, still was able to take my benz though but had to be super careful. Couple opportunities to see waterfalls right off the road too. Few naked hippies on shrooms but pool is pretty large.

Definitely not a family friendly place. Guess the reviews were right about the nudist Other than seeing what I didn’t went to see, it was relaxing. Quite a drive to get to but not a hard hike there.

don’t be fooled by google maps — it takes a lot longer to get there than it says. we got there around 4:10 and there were probably about 7 or 8 people in the pool, so we left. if you look at past reviews directions, it’s not too hard to find. the road is a bit sketchy, there’s a bridge in which the dirt underneath it is starting to crumble. somebody put a stick up with a flag attached on the way back, but i’m not sure if it’s still there.

bumpy road with a lot of potholes but made it up in a vw jetta! tricky to find, make sure you take forest road 1130 and keep right at the 2 forks. in the parking lot there’s the dirt trail that goes to the spring and then another path that used to be the old road. gets busy around noon. hopefully you bump in to steve who’s been frequenting the spring for 30+ years! good guy :)

Take the National Forest road 1130. It’s right after a concrete bridge and the boulder creek campground . There are two forks in the road, take the second fork that you come across. Stay on the right. You will come upon a parking lot about a mile down the fork. We went around 12 and it was crowded. The hot spring isn’t that big so definitely plan to go early!

Nice place. Unfortunately, a lot of potholes on the road, and the pool was overcrowded
