Rock wall has collapsed in places and is in
desperate need of re-construction (it's not worth it though, leave it be).
Access Forest Service Road is not maintained during winter. Snow
shoes, horses and/or electric sled can get you there though.
There is plenty of Boise National
Forest camping nearby - no camping at the springs.
Molly's Toe was very submerged under the beginnings of springs
I haven't see or heard of this hot springs... ever! I can imagine it is
underwater during spring runoff and most of the summer. The hot spring
has a light flow, but hot temps. It looks like at one time there was a
pool built to catch the hot outflow. You won't find a soak here, even
with a little re-designing I think you would be hard pressed for a
decent soak. Works great for a foot soak though!
No Soap, Shampoo or BIO-Soap/Shampoo
Allowed in Hot Springs! Avoid Being Fined!
Public hot springs are not bathing facilities
and do not have 'plumbing' like that of commercial, improved hot springs. Soap and shampoo (including biodegradable soap and shampoo) do not completely breakdown
naturally. This pollutes our water systems (ingested by fish, animals, humans)
at or near the source. This is also illegal in most wilderness and public lands areas.
