Deservedly so, when people come to visit the Greater Yellowstone and Jackson Hole area, many of the hikes and sites around Yellowstone and Grand Teton National park tend to be the places where people want to visit the most. From Old Faithful to Hayden Valley to Jenny Lake and Signal Mountain, there are so many places to see that many people forget about the beautiful sites of Hoback Canyon. One of our most favorite places to go at Dave Hansen Whitewater is Granite Hot Springs, which is about 25 miles south of the town of Jackson Hole. During the spring time, fields of wild flowers are blooming as you are surrounded by the Snow capped mountains of the Wind River Range. There are a few forest service campgrounds as you drive up the dirt road turnoff to the hot springs just off of Hwy 191. There is a beautiful waterfall (this waterfall was filmed in a scene of the movie a River Runs Through it) as you approach the hot springs where a man made pool was used for people to take a dip in. If you prefer to be fully immersed in nature, you can also dip in the hot springs that are just at the base of the waterfall on the other side of the river from the parking lot. Just follow the sulphur smell!
