Round the Bend Revisited


Hot Waterfall-Fed

General Description
Since there is no pool; the best way to enjoy this hot springs is during late summer. At this time you can safely wade the river to the spot where hot meets cold (river should be approx 3ft deep). The hot water, backed by streaks of bright algae, flows down a cliff into the river. There is no pool to soak in at this hot spring.

Wildlife Sighted: Deer, Elk & Fox

Seasonal Notes
The 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. Note: The Middle Fork Boise River Road is a rough one - this is one of my least favorite roads to drive on in Idaho due to the insane washboards. Just something to keep in mind. During the summer you can cut down on the drive time by taking on of the many FSR off State HWY 21 to the Middle Fork Road.

Camping Notes
There are plenty of nearby National Forest campgrounds and primitive sites to choose from.

Not much has changed here, still beautiful. I was too chicken to ford on this brisk autumn day. Maybe when the air temperature is warmer.
