Valley Creek Hot Springs Reviews

Bring a towel or 2 along with your water. This hot spring is less than 1/2 mile off the highway. It is a short partially paved from where you would be parking One of my favorite soaking spots off the road. If you are in the water and see bubbles, those are the hot spring water coming out. Go to the ones that has the most bubbles because it is hotter in that area. The view of the sawtooth mountain was amazing. I came here mid-day but wish I came during sunset or sunrise. Make sure you and your car is ready to drive off road for a bit.

This hot spring is less than 1/2 mile off the highway. And a very short walk from the parking area. It's a great place to soak after a day of adventuring or for a mid road trip soak. The views of the Sawtooth's are unbelievable. If you can come for a sunset, you'll probably have some great views.
