Comments: At 2,000 feet elevation, there are several hot pools on both sides of Salt Creek. Be cautious, and particularly alert with children. The creek is cold and swift, and the springs may be scalding.  Temperatures generally range from 98 to 114º F, but there are several hot spots where the temperature generally exceeds that. The biggest of the pools is 30-35 feet, the smallest 3 feet across, and they may be up to 2 feet deep. Silt and organic debris are the primary bottom materials. Expect nudity at this heavily used place.
