Gillard Hot Springs Professional Review and Guide
"An extremely hot source of water bubbling into the Gila River in an isolated portion of southeastern Arizona. Located in a remote section of the Gila River, not accessible by vehicle, Gillard Hot Springs is a great place to get away. The only signs of human activity out here are the faint roads and isolated cattle corrals.
The trails that you follow to get to the springs were apparently roads at one time, but because of the lack of use and occasional flash floods, they have disappeared in places, leaving only segments. The springs are rather tricky to locate, and care should be taken when venturing into this region. This is a nice location, and well worth a visit. Primitive. The only improvement is the lining of the hot springs with rocks in an effort to maintain pools. The rocks, however, are generally washed out each year."
