On the Intersection of US Highway 287 and MT Highway 84, Norris, Montana is the perfect place to stop and relax after a trip in Yellowstone National Park. Hot Spring Creek, which runs through the town, uses the same geothermal energy that makes the Park so spectacular. For years miners, cowhands, and travelers sought out a warm bath at the springs. Today, Norris Hot Springs offers guests a soak in mineral water pouring from the earth's depths at 120 degrees. Clean, clear, hot water bubbles up through smooth planks into an historic wooden pool. Watch the sun set over the Tobacco Root Mountains and enjoy the live music as you relax in the hot springs. The restaurant offers local microbrews, a selection of fine wine, and delicious local food.
Camp in Norris and go hiking in the nearby Tobacco Root Mountains, part of the Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest. Or, enjoy the abundant natural beauty of the Gallatin National Forest to the east. Soaking in the Norris Hot Springs would be the perfect way to end a day of rafting the Class IV and V rapids in the roadless Beartrap Canyon Wilderness Area. Norris makes the perfect pace to enjoy bounteous natural wonder by day, and the exceptional comfort of a natural hot springs at night.
