A string of more than a dozen hot springs that march north along a fault line in the Oregon desert. The thermal water from the southernmost hot springs creates the 5-acre warm-water Borax Lake. Te desert heat in July and August can be brutal—a September or October visit may be the most pleasant time of year for a visit. No dogs are allowed on the property, so leave your puppy behind. PLEASE NOTE: The Nature Conservancy doesn't permit soaking in Borax Lake or the nearby hot springs.
