A fun drive that leads to an impressive little pass and a hot springs by a beautiful creek. What more could anyone want? Forest Road 70 is wide, level, and easy. Forest Road 7010 winds a lot but is also fairly easy. The trip is somewhat less steep and a little harder to get lost on if you go in the direction I describe. But the opposite direction also works. A 1.5-mile hike along the creek and over a large footbridge takes you to the hot springs, which contains several historical bath houses and lovely grounds.The trailhead area itself is also rather nice. Most interesting are the sometimes un-hiker-looking hikers, who are often smoking cigarettes and carrying coolers full of beer.
