Includes: Bull of the Woods and Bull of the Woods to the Welcome Lakes Loop. A day hike through lush woods to the Shangri-La of hot soaks. No need to pack a swimsuit. The 1.5-mile Bagby Trail is a delight in itself as it undulates through a grand old forest of Douglas-Fir and cedar with an understory of vine maple. Moss-coated logs litter the way, and the path slices between cross sections with 5-foot diameters. The gentle creekside route passes emerald green pools spaced between rapids. Cross three bridges, then leave the creek behind just beyond the last bridge and climb a short hillside to the springs.

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.
