The trail disappears about a mile or so in, the over growth is rough to overcome, but it can be done. I recommend carrying a stick and using it to clear spider webs out of your way, there are a lot of spiders out there. I found the hot spring just about where it is marked on the map, it's just across the river. Crossing the river is fairly sketchy, I had to cross over some fallen trees and then jump across some of the water. The spring is really warm, I wouldn't say hot. I left the orange bucket in a more obvious place than where it was so you should be able to see it from across the river. Good luck and stay safe!

SUPER sad and disappointing! Made it as far as we could, def could have used a machete! Trail is SO over grown and un maintained! Made it to the about an hour and a half in and that was it, after climbing under and over all kinds of debree! Was also told after I got down that due to a slide the springs were buried anyway! Don't waste you're time on this trail, but then again being out in the forest is never a waste of time! Ended up going to Baker Springs, it was amazing - all the huge horse flies!
