Please rate this spring

Directions:  West of Conner, MT, 45 miles. From Missoula take Highway 93 South to Conner. Take a right on State Highway 473 (follow signs to Painted Rocks State Park and continue past it) for 31 miles to the junction of West Fork Road take Woods Creek Road signed for the hot springs roughly 14 miles to Horse Creek Campground.

Features:  Several pools flowing into Horse Creek, the main pool has a wooden enclosure built around it and is about three feet deep and the source of the springs. The fire burned most of the trees from the junction with Woods Creek to the springs. The road is suitable for all cars but the many burned trees on the route could become an issue in a wind event.

Usage:  Medium

Temperature:  The temperature varies from 104 at the source to around 100 in the two other pools before it reaches Horse Creek. Take a dip in the creek for a quick cool down.

Overall:  Horse Creek is a great hot spring. The campground provides several camp spots and there are two newer outhouses available as well.
