Pete Creek Hot Springs Revisited

General Description
Seasonal, user-built rock-walled pools, usually August through October (when the river is low), look on the far side of the Middle Fork of the Boise River for small, rock-walled pools below the waterfall.

Wildlife Sighted: Deer, Elk & Fox

Seasonal Notes
Fording the river is only advised during low water (late season) conditions, usually late July to November. Majority of roads into Atlanta close during winter save for one route which is sketchy at best most winters especially given the large amount of deaths that occur on this road during the summer months.

Hot Waterfall - Cold Soak

Camping Notes
Plenty of nearby National Forest campgrounds and primitive sites to choose from.

09.16.06 Trip Report
Foiled again! There were no pools below the waterfall as I had hoped, it looks like soaking this one requires a river ford and soak in the cold river just below the waterfall. Hmmm, maybe during the warmer season, but not today... too cold.
