This trail doesn’t actually start where the map shows, so we walked about .75 miles to get to the real trailhead (keep driving up the mountain to the true trailhead signage). The trail was really overgrown, so we didn’t go more than 100 yards before turning back and walking to the car. None of us were prepared to be in growth like that, so none of us had pants on.

Great hidden trail! The trail portion of this hike starts about .5 miles up from where it stays the trail head is, but the road is rough and barely traveled by cars, so it’s not unpleasant to start farther down. The beginning of the trail is overgrown, but within 2 minutes in the trail becomes more clear and visible. We saw a herd of elk, blue jays, and a field of wildflowers. Pretty good trade off for mild bushwhacking and no other people.

It’s a long drive up through the mountains. We found the hot springs but the shacks and tubs were gone. The hot spring is boil from the ground, it’s extremely hot. It’s also on private property. Hopefully they make it into a resort or something.

The hot springs is on Private property and is not part of the Boise NF. It's a very dirty place that no one takes care of. Trash and vandalism are rampant.

This is a unique place to go take a natural Hot Springs. It is a beautiful place to have a picnic. No hiking required. You can drive right to the Hot Springs. There is only one shack left but there is one outside as well. Well worth the experience.
