Trail Overview

From Big Springs Campground, this is a fast and run route to an amazing natural hot creek! Complete with sizzling hot springs (careful, too hot to touch) that are a beautiful aqua color. Two-track roads that are ideal for SXS's or dirt bikes and ATVs. Wind your way through the forest before popping out to a popular hot spring. Further down the road is hot creek. It's worth the short hike down to the creek to get an up-close view of the springs. The top of the hill provides some spectacular photo opportunities. Head east and bring your fishing pole for some fishing - catch and release only.


There are some windy sections through the trees that would be more difficult in a full size truck, but doable. Relatively easy trails with smaller rocks and ruts being the largest obstacle. Not recommended for 2WD.
