At the end of a short hike
through the Boise National Forest you will find one of Idaho's most
unique hot springs. There is so much flow at Vulcan that the US
Department of Energy has been salivating over it's geothermal
potential for years. I've heard many a rumor that uncle Sam wants to
develop the Vulcan complex into a geothermal power plant. Let's hope
that doesn't happen!
Vulcan Hot Springs used to
have a couple different soaking options. Now there is primarily one.
There are others, but because of the design of the main pool,
difficulty awaits for the opportunist soaker. The main pool pool is
huge. Without a doubt the largest in Idaho. Almost too large if you
ask me, I'm worried that there is too much slow moving water. And
yes, Red Spider Mites AKA Chiggers are active at this hot springs,
but in low amounts. Just keep your clothing and towel away from the
hot springs area.
