The Geyser Springs Trail was once part of an old Forest Service trail system and telephone line that ran from the Imnaha Guard Station, down the Middle Fork Canyon. It led up to Bessie Rock Guard Station and ended at Bessie Rock Lookout. Used for fire watch communications in the 1920′s, the telephone line and much of the trail were abandoned in the 1960′s.
Beginning on Forest road #300, the trail drops to the Middle Fork of the Rogue River. The springs are located about 1/3 mile from the road, 25 feet below the trail. There is no established trail leading to the springs. However, several small springs and waterfalls can be viewed for those hiking down to the river. Fishing is excellent for native rainbow and brook trout.
Note: Due to low volume of use this trail receives limited maintenance. Be prepared to encounter brush and downed logs.
