The majority of roads into the Atlanta area close during winter save for one
route which is sketchy at best most winters especially given the
large amount of accidents that occur on this road during the summer
months. Note: The Middle Fork Boise River Road is a rough one - this
is one of my least favorite roads to drive on in Idaho due to the
insane washboards. Something to keep in mind. During the summer you
can cut down on the drive time by taking on of the many FSR off
State HWY 21 to the Middle Fork Road.
Plenty of nearby National Forest campgrounds and primitive sites to choose from
up and down the road.
One of these days I'm going to come out here when it's hotter than
blazes! So I can enjoy fording the river to all of the soaks on the
wrong side of the river, Brown's Creek being one of them. Until
then, all I can say is it looks and sounds good.
What a nice little surprise Brown Hot Spring turned out to be. The
river water, freezing, let me tell you. But the soaking, not too
shabby. Had there been something a bit deeper I would have been
stoked. The dual hot waterfall/showers definitely helped. The best
time to visit Brown is late August. Swim during the day and soak at
dusk and dawn.
