NOTE: In 2017 the park service closed the east entrance and the trail to the hot springs due to overcrowding. Unfortunately there was really never room for more than a dozen people and tour buses with 40 were adding to visitors staying locally. We’re working on an update to the map but the current version still shows the trail.
