Dating back to the 1890s, Circle Hot Springs attracts visitors all year. The springs are 140 degrees F at its source and produce 386 gallons of steaming water each minute. The springs were discovered by a prospector who trailed a wounded moose and came across an unusually warm creek.

The springs are located eight miles from the town of Central on Circle Hot Springs Rd off Steese Hwy at Mile 127.8.

Before the gold rush, Athabascan Indians gathered at the hot springs. There is a 3,600 foot gravel airstrip there now.
