The trail to Jerry Johnson Hot Springs is the single most popular hike in the Clearwater National Forest, and at any given time you can expect to share the hot springs with at least two or three other parties—even in the dead of winter. The hike is quite pleasant and is well within the abilities of younger children; even the slowest individuals should be able to reach the hot springs in less than 45 minutes. The falls on Warm Springs Creek, located 2.4 miles farther upstream, make a fine turnaround point for a longer and slightly more challenging trek.
