Two primitive high-country hot springs pools with outstanding views of the surrounding Tobacco Root Mountains. This is one of the few hot springs in Montana on public land. The two primitive soaking pools and the great view of the surrounding mountains make Upper Potosi well worth the easy hike. Surrounding the pools is a lodgepole pine fence built to exclude the cattle that occasionally graze in the creekbed surrounds the pools. You’ll need to climb over or through the fence to reach the hot water. The kidney-shaped upper soaking pool is about 6 feet by 10 feet and comfortably holds three or four bathers. The hot water enters from the uphill side of the pool and from seeps in the pool’s bottom. Two to three gallons per minute of hot water flow through a plastic pipe from the upper to the lower pool. The smaller lower pool can host one or two soakers. Water temperatures in the pools vary from 104 to 110 degrees F. Swimsuits are optional. Primitive.
