Gold bug IS the gem of the northwest! I've hiked goldbug in September2013, February2014 & June2014. I've done think hike in all weather. It's so much fun! This hike has some easy points & some tough points. Of course the view from the top is the SPECTACULAR!!! Such an experience!
Is this possible in the middle of winter? WOuld I need snow shoes or something?
Currently there is a NO CAMPING policy within 500 ft. of the hot springs. Sadly, people keep ignoring this -- which means their pee, poop, and toilet paper stays right there. PLEASE DON'T CAMP THERE.
Stopped at Lolo Hot Springs on the way home to Missoula from Boise, Idaho. It was definitely a nice break from the road. The inside pool wasn't crowded at all and the water temperature was 104 degrees. The outside pool was significantly colder, especially since it was only about 45 degrees outside. Only took a dip in it before going back inside. The water could be cleaner, but I don't think there's much of a solution to that, and it wasn't a deal-breaker. All in all, I'm glad we stopped!
