We had an enjoyable time in the hot springs. The hike was easy and the scenery was beautiful, the hot springs were incredibly relaxing.

We parked in the lot on the South side of 58 (by the bathroom) and had to ford Salt Creek to get to the nicer hot springs, one of which was dug out to about two feet deep and perfect for a soak. There were also deeper pools along the river. Fording the creek was a fun adventure, but one of our group had trouble with it (it was about knee deep and somewhat swift), so we walked back along the trail and then the highway. If you don't want to cross the creek, turn down Shady Gap Road, turn right at both splits, and park at the bend to hike the mile to the springs. The hike to the springs was through beautiful primeval looking forest, with huge ferns and lots of moss and wildflowers. We went on a Monday about noon, and there were only two other people there. Also, fair warning that clothing is optional.

Me and three lovely ladies went to McCready Hot Springs on 1/23/18. We witnessed a man ‘spanking his monkey’ across the river. I yelled at him ‘put that shit away!’ A minute later, we heard him shoot a gun from that side of the river. We didn’t feel comfortable enough to stay so we got our things and made our way back to the car. On my driver side window was this sticky note... waiting for us. He wrote us a note to let us know how much he liked watching us in the water while he “Jacked off so fucking hard”. When we called the police to tell them about the creeper, they told us there wasn’t enough to send a cop out to investigate. Don’t send your teenagers out there! Don’t let girls go alone. Someone is going to end up hurt, or assaulted. There’s no cell coverage there and you can bet he knows it.

There is a small hot springs at the day use area which smelled awful! But there’s another hot springs across the river - took a little bit of patience to find how to get to the trail that takes you to it. It has a larger hot springs and a few small ones along the river. Beautiful scenery while soaking!

Beautiful falls!!

Monday, May 29, 2017

This is an absolutely beautiful waterfall!The road to the trailhead isn't real well maintained. A lower clearance vehicle would probably be okay if driven carefully. Brush encroaches a bit in some areas. The trail is mostly easy with sections of moderate. There are some stretches that are a bit narrow and feel pretty exposed.
When reaching the falls, watch for a faint trail that keeps going along the bank for a much better view of the two waterfalls and streams that come together here.
