Bubbling out of natural underground springs, these hot springs are laden with minerals, but lack sulfur and therefore all you smell is the great Idaho wilderness. Over 2.5 million gallons of hot mineral water course through the pools each day before entering the Portneuf River, keeping the springs ever-changing and clean.
