We love our hot springs here in Idaho, but some have become quite popular and crowded. Fortunately, there are still some dreamy places to relax and soak while staying away from other people. Bear Creek Hot Springs, located in the Caribou-Targhee National Forest and near Palisades Reservoir, is one of these places. You’ll have a long 13-mile hike ahead of you but the reward at the end is so worth the journey.
