What a beautiful hike! We did have to stop and ask a ranger which turnoff for the trailhead closest to the springs (at the very end of the Little Crater campground). No problem finding the springs from the trail, plenty of people were out there on Memorial Day weekend. Soaked our feet in a hole already dug out, though the ranger did ask that people fill in when they leave. I would definitely keep this trip in mind for the winter months.
Great hike if you've only got a couple of hours, plus beautiful views of the Cascade peaks. This park is very busy though, expect to have a hard time finding parking and lots of other hikers.
