    Detailed Trail Descriptions from Our Guidebooks

    "A popular pool cloaked in greenery at the end of a primitive 0.5-mile creekside path. Swimwear: first come, first served. A delightful pool sits under a canopy of evergreens above a lively creek. It’s bordered by split logs and features a slab rock/sand bottom. The water is constantly cleaned by the ample flow from the 117-degree F springs; the hot flow can be partially diverted with the aid of a removable wooden gutter. If the gutter’s gone, you’re in for a very toasty soak." Read more

    "The Weir Creek Trail leads to a popular hot spring tucked alongside a creek in a cedar grove. The trail has a steady gradient and cuts across a sidehill through the forest. It can be dangerous in winter, with ice forming on the narrow trail. Steep slopes give way from the trail to the creek bottom. The hot spring , situated just above the creek on a rock outcrop, is deep and large. Weir Creek is located over Lolo Pass, along the Lochsa River in Idaho. A primitive trail continues up Weir Creek through pristine oldgrowth temperate rain forest." Read more
    "A series of secluded hot pools in a quiet grove of cedars next to a mountain stream. The short but rocky hike to the springs usually means fewer soakers than at nearby Jerry Johnson Hot Springs. Although Weir Creek Hot Springs is in Idaho, many Montanans claim it as their own because Missoula is the closest large city to the springs." Read more
