A short, fairly easy hike through moss covered trees leads to a series of hot springs scattered throughout the woods. The water is a great temperature, there is camping in the area (with permits), and there is a chance for a secluded soak depending on which pool you choose to soak in.

Easy hike, the springs are nice. When I went in August 2015, there were several groups besides ours. Would definitely recommend for an easy overnight trip or day trip.

I've been here before and it was a nice easy hike. The only downfall was the trail was paved most of the way.

The road is closed right now though, so you won't be able to get to the trailhead unless you walk from the Madison Falls trailhead which will add about 3.5 miles to your hike. I hope the road opens soon!

Great hike for all skill levels. Hot springs are a nice break when you get up to them and people have put rocks around them so people can decide to sit and dip their feet or get in and relax. We did this hike with our 1 year old and 3 year old and they did really well and enjoyed the hot springs.
