Geocache Description:

Owyhee Homestead Series
Dedicated to the pioneers who first settled this area.

Idaho Geocachers

Early pioneer homestead located at Indian Hot Springs just downstream of the Bruneau and Jarbidge Rivers confluence. Very scenic journey as you descend 1000 feet into the Bruneau River Canyon. The road is steep and rocky, intended for high clearance vehicles only. Make sure you are prepared for desert travel before attempting this cache. This location is a put in for Bruneau River floaters during spring run-off. There are several camping spots along the bank. I recommend you take some extra time to explore the immediate area and enjoy the hot springs.

Although the cache itself is located within the Bruneau-Jarbidge Rivers Wilderness Area, a motorized vehicle corridor allows access from either the east or the west. If you are driving a full size vehicle, use the eastern approach. When you reach the river, park at the bridge and hike the remaining distance. The western approach should not be attempted in anything larger than an ATV. Regardless of which approach you use be aware that the last few miles of the road to the cache are extremely rocky. A few bumps will give you an added appreciation of the people who first settled here.
