My boy friend and I decided to google local hot springs in our area which is close to Mt. Angel OR. The first cite that poped up was bagby hot springs, so we went for it. We loaded up a back back with some essentials including our new puppy, and took off to bagby. It was supprisingly really easy to find, it took us 1 hr and 1/2 but the drive was beautiful. We also heard about vandalism but deceded to chance it. We got there about 3pm and it was packed luckly there was one room that we used and there was a place to tie up our puppy. The people were really friendly and it was cleaner than we expected. For those of you who ahvent been there, there are buckets at the bottom of the trail,....GRAB one you will need it. The water is 137 degree's and you will need to cool it down with those buckets. We had to borrow but the people were great about. We had a really great time, but forgot to pack a flash light, so about half way down the trail it was pitch black and we thought we would have to stay there, but luckly there was a really nice man who gave us his flash light! So our advice to you would be, bring: extra towels, a camera, a flash light, and a couple bottle of water.
