Slate Creek Hot Springs in Idaho Update

My friend and I cruised into Slate Creek hoping for a much needed soak after a backpacking trip. What we found was hard to believe. Every primitive campsite between highway 75 and the hot springs was full except for a couple located just down the road from the highway. We arrived at the parking area just in time to see some idiots moving the large rocks and boulders between the parking area and the short trail to the hot springs. Then, after two street bikes (!!!!) floored it off-road down the trail toward the spring, the pickup followed - backwards! I guess since there was no nearby camping these nutty partiers decided to camp and park their vehicles right next to the hot springs in hopes of having it to themselves....

My recent experience varies with that of a recent trip report I received a few days ago, check it out here.
