Bagby Hot Springs are located among towering firs adjacent to a secluded tributary of the Clackamas River. The springs are accessible by a 1.5 mile trail from the trailhead and offer a unique recreation experience.  There are two open bath houses.  The first open bath house has one large group tub.  The second open bath house has one large group tub and three smaller 1-2 person cedar tubs. The bathhouse with the single person tubs has been deemed unsafe for human occupancy due to structural concerns and is CLOSED.  Alcohol is prohibited at the site and bathers should bring their own drinking water. See the information page about Bagby Hot Springs.
