Chattanooga Hot Springs features one large and shallow hot
waterfall-fed pool next to the Middle Fork of the Boise River near
the quaint mining town of Atlanta, Idaho. Depending on how strong
spring runoff is or was, the pool may be submerged in the river. The
key to a stellar soak? Come late season.
The locals have been known to bathe in
the hot springs on occasion, and have been known to creep out those
unfortunate enough to not be from Atlanta. If you don't want to
raise eyebrows here's what to do: get a an old beat-up pickup truck,
a gun rack and roll around in the mud. Empty beer cans and trash in
the truck bed and a squint with a good stink-eye will get you extra
may be tricky because the flat area above the hot springs is on
private land. The last time I visited it was signed as "No
Trespassing". I had to park near the access road and hike in.
Although not personally experienced, I've heard plenty of rumors
that Red Spider Mites
are living large at C-town.
