Hot Spring
“It’s an hour drive, but worth it. Rustic outdoor soaking hot springs. Great food, too! Drive during daytime so you can see the Madison River.”

Trail
“This is a great hike leading to a few beautiful mountain lakes. It is a perfect half-day hike and is generally pretty easy but be warned that the last bit is steep, and you are at fairly high elevation. To get to the trailhead, drive west onto Highway 64 from the junction of highway 191 and travel approximately 9-10 miles. Continue until the end taking a right immediately before the Moonlight Basin gate onto Beehive Basin Road. Follow this windy road for two miles to the parking area and trailhead. ”

“Beautiful is the only way to describe the trail head. Winter maybe a little hard to access as it is in the mountains.”
