Stanley Area Hot Springs

Not much is better than waking up to the sun just hitting the Sawtooth Peaks, stepping out into the chilly mountain air and slipping into a pool of natural hot water.  Besides, maybe, doing so after a long hike or a day of fishing. 

In Stanley, this can easily be done. Stanley is situated over the Idaho Batholith, a granite formation fractured by faults.  Through each fault, hot water from deep in earth’s core rushes up, spilling out onto the surface, creating pools, mixing with streams, making steamy gathering places for the weary adventurer.

As a result of the faults, Stanley is surrounded by hot springs.  Whether at the destination of a long hike or right next to the road out of town, the hot springs of Stanley bring an essence of paradise to the area.
