Mile-16 Sugah Hot Spring

Mile-16 (Sugah) Hot Spring Professional Review and Guide

"Includes: Blackmare Lake. A sylvan soak in the South Fork Salmon River Canyon hidden below a paved road. Skinnydippable with discretion. A crystal-clear soaking pool, well concealed from the nearby road, sits at the base of a steep bank on the river’s edge. It’s enclosed by attractive chunks of stream rock mortared tightly in place.

A large slab at one end makes a backrest for enjoying the view up the tree-studded canyon. Spring water, cooling from 115 degrees F as it trickles down the bank, can be diverted by means of a long pipe. Locals refer to this spot as Mile-16 because of its strategic location on the road. It’s also known as Sugah, Fire Crew, and Holdover. Whatever it’s called, this is a tastefully designed pool in a great setting. Please don’t abuse the privilege of using it—remember, no soap or shampoo."

This hot spring is on the smaller side compared to others in Idaho, but it has some beautiful views of the nearby Boise National Forest and the Salmon River. It's a nice place for a hot soak and relaxation.
