Steamy soaks hiding in the woods below a dirt road. Skinnydippable with discretion. Around the bend is the coup de grâce, a plywood soaking box 7 ft/2 m square. A pipe channels water from the 141-degree F/60.5- degree C spring, and a valve regulates the flow. The recommended technique is to leave it at just a trickle, otherwise it gets far too hot. A bucket has been provided for adding river water. The three-sided shed offers a dry spot for clothes, and decking covers the muddy ground around the springs. A path leads to the nearby river where those so inclined can take an ice cold plunge between soaks. There’s a separate source and a shallow rock/sand hot pool at the river’s edge that surfaces after spring runoff. A lush cedar forest wraps the area in total privacy.

Was a nice place, i had the beautiful experience of dealing with young yahoos that didnt care to clean up after them selves, other then that very beautiful place , watch out for poison ivy , its everywhere around the base or bottom of the trail when ur done the steep part of the main trail:) stay real and really if u drink dont buy bottles, cans wont brake, we all walk around there bare foot:) clean up after ur selves and have a wicked @$!*% time:)

river was high just about in to the natural pools. very pleasant and clean. we were there a week. mostly nude. a few suit no suit issues but mostly co-operative fun folks around. lower road was deeply rutted,damaged and stuck a car. a great clothing optional spot.
