I drove out from Boise for a hike in the mountains and a soak in the Springs. It couldn’t have worked out better for me. The soak is easily accessible from the parking lot and was the perfect way to warm up after a chilly hike. Fee pay station is closed for the season.

Beautiful hike with varied landscapes. Aspens, scree field, waterfalls, and more. Multiple waterfalls in the first half of the hike were fantastic in their frozen state. The flat saddle at the end of the hike can be your final destination (~3.3 miles) or you can climb the hill on the right of the path for a beautiful Summit. It adds about another mile, but it makes for a great break spot with views in all directions. Several points along the trail have extreme drop offs, so children should be closely supervised during those portions of the hike.
