Wildlife Sighted: Deer
Accessible all year - dirt
forest is not plowed during winter; access on horseback or
Plenty of official
and primitive Boise National
Forest camping nearby - no camping at the springs.
No trash, no tubs, but there ARE two (rather silty) natural pools
taking shape down by the river.
The tubs are really gone! And, so is the trash. Plus, there are two
new shallow-soakers that are pretty much good to go.
Not much new to report here... tubs and temps in good soaking
condition. Check out
the video for more.
02.27.08 News Update: Molly's Tubs Shot-Up
Molly's Tubs are looking quite good these days; the condition of the
tubs have improved since my last visit. For some reason, despite all
of the other nearby soaking ops, Molly's Tubs remains one of the
most popular soaks in the area. There were two ladies and one of
their children enjoying a couple hot tubs upon our arrival. This
place is usually jam-packed with high-end SUVs, cars etc. I think
it's become somewhat 'trendy' to soak in the tubs of late.
The water seemed hot enough, but we were in a rush to some other hot springs in the area so only a quick leg soak was in order during our visit. There was an outline of a
rock walled pool at the creek's edge despite it being submerged in the last of the spring run-off.
No camping signs are posted around the hot springs.
One vehicle on the way in and one on the way out.
08.04.06 & 08.05.06
No vehicles at the tubs on the 4th, and only 1 SUV on the 5th
despite heavy amounts of area recreational users.
Woah! What's the deal here? This place was slammin both times I
cruised on by. High-end SUVs littered the road; there was just
enough room for me to squeeze though.
Steady light traffic to and from the springs during the day.
