    Ryegrass Hot Spring Professional Guide

    Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

    "A day hike or overnighter to a spring known only to river runners, in the lower Owyhee Canyon. Swimwear: a hat and bug juice. Water emerges from the ground at 110 degrees F, and several steamy channels lined with orange algae flow down the bank into one or two small pools hidden in the tall grass at the river’s edge.

    The pools get some TLC and cleaning during the float season, roughly March through June, but at low water you’ll have them all to yourself. If you decide on a soak, you’ll need a bucket to cool them down with river water. But the river may look a lot more inviting on a hot summer day."
