Unless you’re uncomfortable about being among naked people, this is one place you should absolutely visit; and even if you do dislike the disrobed, just avoid the bathhouses. The hike isn’t much of a challenge, but it passes through sublime ancientgrowth forest. And the springs feature cedar-log tubs, some of them private. It can get very busy on weekends (though alcohol is now banned at the springs), and an attendant at the trailhead lot should help reduce car break-ins.

Still a little wet on this trail. The short loop is quite safe. If you go beyond the suspension bridge, be prepared for a small waterfall that lands right on the trail. A cable is attached to the rock behind. This part of the trail not for children....ungaurded ledges are breathtaking!

Beautiful and very scenic trail that crosses a short suspension bridge, descends on a 30FT Steel ladder as you pass majestic waterfalls. Highly recommended hike, the trail to the canyon is very narrow and has sheer drop so extreme caution is required.
