Granite Hot Springs Day Trip Description

The pool is open summer and winter, with short closures in spring and fall.

Winter Season

During winter, access to the natural hot spring is accessible by groomed trail, but limited to your own snowmobile, dog sled, skis, or snowshoes. The area is well visited for snowmobile riding and soaking so plan on getting to the parking area early if you are there on a weekend. Winter hours are 10:00am to 6:00pm. Closed for a month in fall so be sure to call ahead.

Summer Season

The Granite Creek area offers excellent mountain recreation in the Gros Ventre Mountains for hikers and fishermen. Summer soaking hours are from 10:00 am to 8:00 pm. If you plan on coming in the spring, make sure to call ahead at 1-307-734-7400 as mud may make the road impassable.

Attention: Spring Road Closures Are Common

During an above average snow year, road access can be delayed by 1-2 weeks. Before traveling, please call ahead to check on road conditions (1-307-734-7400). High snow depths may delay the opening of the Granite Hot Springs road.
