A short and excellent hike to the major tourist attraction of Boiling Springs Lake.  There are few like it in the United States outside of Yellowstone.

For good measure there is a fun bridge over Hot Springs Creek (cold, actually).  And the trailside Drakesbad Hot Spring.

Also well worth your effort is a brief side trip to much prettier, although less exciting, Dream Lake.
