A member of the National Register of Historic Places, the original Verde River Sheep Bridge was erected by the Howared Sheep Company and the Flagstaff Sheep Company in the 1940s to minimize the number of sheep casualties when crossing the Verde River.
The hot springs emerge on the west side of the river, behind a dense growth of reeds just slightly northwest of the bridge. Follow the trail at the base of the west side of the bridge along the cliff face (just to the right of the ‘climbing cactus’ you’ll see in one of the pictures below) and through the overgrowth to where a man-made, hot-tub-size stone enclosure creates a nice bathing pool.

Did you take that picture up on top (of Sheep’s Bridge)?? All of your photos in this blog are great!
