We (a male and a female friend) came over here in 1990 for showing me that nice place. Normally it's a small resort but the hot springs themselves are what we were interested in. After paying a tiny user fee we hiked up there. It was very beautiful (complete nature!). There was nobody there at that time so we went naked and took a bath in the very cold ajacent creek. There has been only one hot spring "tub" which fits about 4 persons.
It was a blast and you really should check it out!
Falls Creek Falls is one of the most difficult waterfalls to photograph I’ve been to . It is very large at over 300 feet (91 m) but the trees growing around the falls obscure any views one might have. No less than 3 large drops of at least 80 feet (24 m) characterize this waterfall as a must see.
With the volume and carnage of the water ripping down this hillside. It is strange that virtually no development has been done to accommodate viewers. I will need to return to this site and see about getting some better pictures. The time of day that I went was not desireable for lighting. The hike to the falls is about 2 miles (3.2 km) and is worth every step.
Panther Creek Falls is truly unique. The majority of the water falling is a part of Panther creek which is a fairly high volume cataract. The interesting thing is that the more noticeable portion of the waterfall seems to be a result of several large springs or maybe the confluence of another creek.
The entire wall adjacent to Panther Creek’s main flow turns into a large sheet of water originating from several points. In all the total drop is around 130 feet (40 m). My photo’s are bad since I viewed the falls at probably the worst time of the day as far as lighting is concerned. It is, however, an extremely beautiful waterfall and its secluded locatoin make it even more special.
North of Carson along the Wind River Road to Old State Road and turn East. Then left on Panther Creek Road. Drive for 7 miles to the signed trailhead. The falls is a very short walk from there.
