  • Came here with my family, hiking up to it excited only to find a bunch of naked hippies smokign pot. IT WAS LIT, awesome experience. Water was perfect and clear. Hipped gave me a dr.thunder. His name was scooter
  • Beautiful location, very easy to get to. There was however some trash issues but the water was clean. Just a note that if you see trash around the hot springs, make an effort to pick it up so all can enjoy. Also the view was amazing while sitting back and relaxing!
  • Water was luke warm at best. The hike is nice and beautiful.
  • The hike is very nice. The scenery is absolutely stunning. You hike for about a mile to get to the hot springs. Once you arrive, you are greeted by a new open area and a layered rock that has multiple bowls, so to speak, filled with water. The water is murky brown, and not very warm. More like luke warm springs. It's also very busy. The hot springs themselves are often occupied by people traveling through the area. It's a bit busy for my taste, but it could be nice if you find a time where there aren't so many people visiting.
  • Easy hike. Great view. Friendly people. Will be back!
