It’s day 32 of our 40-day #GetOutAndGO project. Today, we’re featuring Kirkham Hot Springs outside Boise, ID and to celebrate Optic Nerve is giving away a $100 gift card!

Soak in Kirkham Hot Springs

One of the most relaxing things to do outside is soak in a hot spring. There’s nothing quite like relaxing and allowing warm minerals to soothe achy muscles from big adventures. Bonus points if the hot spring doesn’t require a grueling hike.

Tucked along the South Fork of the Payette River is where you’ll find Kirkham Hot Springs, a great place to hot-spring near Boise.

The hot spring itself is easily accessible and family friendly.

Right next to the hot spring is a campground, making Kirkham Hot Springs a terrific multi-day getaway.

Optic Nerve is giving away a $100 gift card today to celebrate Kirkham Hot Springs. Enter to win by commenting on this post:

Whether you’re passing through Boise, ID on a roadtrip or you’re local and you’ve had a long week at the office, Kirkham Hot Springs is a terrific place to go and relax.
