Mickey Alvord Wells loop will take you by the Mickey Hot Springs, a geothermal springs area that is too hot for soaking but is a colorful boiling geological marvel. The main access to this trail is from East Steens Road. The Mickey Alvord Wells loop continues past the hot springs and into the high desert going by a cowboy camp and circling back toward East Steens. The trail is relatively easy to the springs. Once past it, you will periodically go over rougher rocky patches. You can also access the Alvord Desert Play on the southern side of the loop. There is one visible dispersed campsite across from the Mickey Hot Springs trailhead.
