Granite Falls Hot Springs Professional Review and Guide

"Several shallow soaking pools and a hot waterfall located just below beautiful Granite Falls in the Gros Ventre Mountains. Hard-core soaking enthusiasts can combine a morning of steamy immersion in the primitive Granite Falls hot pools with an afternoon of bliss in the more developed Granite Hot Springs pool 0.5 mile to the north. The cold waters of Granite Creek cascade directly over one of the largest fault lines in the entire Rocky Mountain region, forming the breathtaking Granite Falls. Stretching for more than 50 miles from east to west, the Cache Creek Fault caused a tremendous upthrust of the surrounding rock layers millions of years ago, forming the entire Gros Ventre mountain range.

Thermal water flows from the seep into a shallow pool next to the creek, but this pool may be too hot for soaking. A few yards upstream on Granite Creek are two other soaking pools, both rendered a more comfortable 95 to 110 degrees F by the diversion of cold water from Granite Creek to mix with the thermal water. All of the soaking pools are flooded during the high spring runoff from Granite Creek, and in very wet years the pools may be unusable until late summer or fall. Primitive."

"A picturesque soaking pool located at an elevation of 7,000 feet in the Gros Ventre Mountains. The hot springs are increasingly popular with winter visitors."

This was by far one of the nicest experiences our family could chosen to do. We arrived at 6pm one hour before closing time. There was only one other couple there. The scenery is beautiful with fast rapids flowing below the man made pool. The pool was clean and wonderfully warm. There is an area of natural rocks with the hot spring flowing into the pool that has the normal algae growth which is accessible to bathers as well. The closer one gets to the spring the warmer the water. After an hour at $6. per person ($4. for 12 and under) our entire family was relaxed beyond words. Be forewarned as were we by someone leaving as we were arriving..."Get ready to feel like an overcooked noodle". No more explanation needed.

The spot was majestic, natural and so much fun. We went on a slow evening after hiking around Jenny Lake. Our kids loved it and we even heard you might see some big horn sheep in the evening. It was a gorgeous spot.
