Featuring everything from developed hot springs resorts to isolated mountain pools, this guide covers the publicly accessible hot springs in Montana and Wyoming. Clear directions are given to each hot spring along with historical notes, nearby attractions, accommodations, and soaking regulations in Yellowstone National Park.

Jeff currently consults on geothermal energy projects and more than a dozen soakable hot springs are within a two-hour drive of Jeff’s home in Missoula, Montana.
