This is a great spot for a 2-3 day trip. The road down the canyon should be hiked in unless your comfortable with a lot of 4x4 crawling and route finding. Note there aren’t any cellular signals on AT&T or Verizon so if you get stuck there you’re going to have to have a tough time getting help. Bring everything you need to change your flat and traction boards for muddy spots. And since there are a lot of private lands out there be respectful and thankful that these springs are accessible. All that being said the warm springs are located in the picturesque Owyhee Canyon and are in a beautiful natural state. Definitely the most beautiful, clean, and natural warm springs I’ve seen in Oregon. It’s great to see places like this still exist. Enjoy and Leave No Trace.

this is definitely worth the drive out there. the views are just awesome, went beginning of may which was perfect weather, hills were pretty green.

I drove into this spot in October 2019 and was able to ford the river in my 2001 Dodge Ram 4x4 with no problem. When I tried again in early March 2020 the spring run-off had swollen the river so fording was impossible. Have not hiked this area, but the canyon is beautiful here!

2/8-2/9/20: Drove up in my 93’ Honda Accord had to cross a medium size stream. Water level was low, any higher and my car wouldn’t have made it. The campsites at the trail head are great! Bathrooms and fire pits along with tables. Spent the night in a tent. Wasn’t too cold but Very Windy!! The trail was muddy and was made more for off roading. The mud sticks to the bottom of your feet. Once you reach the end (top of the hill you’ll see a large rock painted white) keep going and that’s where the fun begins. There are cows. The drive up is amazing. I kept having to stop to take pictures which I posted on here. There’s the cutest sheep farm you pass with a guard dog who will run alongside of your car until you drive pass his baby sheep (about 1/4mi) Overall I feel the trip there was more beautiful than the hike itself but worth it! The first part of the trail is up hill do take it slow at first. I did the Jump Creek Falls Trail on my way home a Very Easy .6mi trail great for kids and about 20+/-mins drive from the campsite. I left a review and pictures on the hike so check them out. A beautiful waterfall tucked away in a hidden canyon. Just like the movies!!!

Beautiful spring hike. just follow the creek about 1.2 miles from the gate until the canyon opens up

Water was too high to hike the trail so we walked the dirt road and climbed the rocks to find geodes.

Couldn’t do the trail. Creek was too high and deep and impassable.

Easy trail. No indication whatsoever but the path to follow is very clear. Trail head is just after crossing the bridge at the camp site, on the left. Once reaching the end, instead of doing a loop, I continued straight to follow the steps of a hiker who left a recording on the app 4 years ago. I reached a fence and couldn’t continue (not sure whether it was a private land or not). Instead, I followed the fence in the right (no more trail there) and reached a canyon that I couldn’t cross (too steep) to reach the road on the other side. I ended up going back to the trail thankfully without crossing any snake in the way. Note that the part of the loop going back in the initial trail of as not visible at all.

Nice trail with cool views of Succor Creek. Unfortunately, I went off trail into the narrow canyon near the trailhead and got into poison ivy. Be careful that you don't do the same!

Clean free camp site, first come first serve, get cozy with your neighbors because you’re all right on top of each other, but you are surrounded by tall scenic landscapes. The views are spectacular with amazingly colored landscapes. Tons of trails to hike and drive. Would totally recommend anyone to go if you get a chance. About a 2 hr drive to the campsites if your coming from the Boise area of Idaho.

Awesome day hike! Really surprised by this one. It's tucked away on some back roads. Spent about 5 hours back there and didn't see another person. Would definitely do again. The only thing I would recommend is to download the directions prior to entering the area. There isn't any cell service within 20 miles. So if you aren't familiar you will surely miss your turn. Hike was awesome. Not too difficult and the view just got better as I went deeper into the trail.

I took the jeep and dogs out from Kuna along the back roads toward Jordan Valley and then connected with the route thru to leslie gulch. The road was washboarded out pretty bad for quite a bit of the trip and it was HOT! When we got to the gulch, it was mostly dried up. I think this year (2013)has been a hard, dry summer. On the way back we turned north and out thru Succor creek. There is some "middle earth" looking terrain up there! So cool to see (but hot and dusty) and we did a little exploring. I won't be doing this trip again in summer... maybe spring time would be better. We had fun but man was the jeep dusty! ha BC

This is a very fun and pretty trail to hike

We visited the Leslie Gulch area and the weather was perfect. A lot of people were also enjoying the great weather and the very scenic area. The road in the canyon was washed out in most of the low spots, but still passable by automobiles. I added some photos to this guide.

This is a great driving trip to take while it is still cool in late April, May or early June. Watch for the mud. This time of year you'll see Big Horn sheep along with their lambs and the rock formations are extremely interesting.

We visited the area today. It had recently rained, but the Leslie Gulch and Succor Creek Roads were in good shape. At least there was no dust. Fog hampered visibility and photography for most of our ride. I added several photos to the Guide.
