This trail leaves the northern end of National Forest Road 698 (NF-698) and travels north along the Middle Fork of the Payette River. As it leaves the road it passes by the historical Boiling Springs Guard Station recreation rental cabin, then a series of natural hot springs before its junction with the Bull Creek Trail. This trail is non-motorized from the end of the NF-698 road to the junction with the Bull Creek Trail, where it becomes single track motorized for 0.5 miles before returning to non-motorized status until the end of the trail at NF-409. The lower portion of the trail crosses the river 17 times and is very dangerous during periods of high stream flow, so please use extreme caution. Southeast from the trailhead across the river is a dispersed camping area that will accommodate horses.
