The Bagby Hot Springs, in Estacada, OR, are clean, well-maintained, and easy to hike to. You will probably see naked people, and they will probably be middle-aged, overweight white guys who insist on rising unceremoniously out of the water in order to initiate a conversation. Ignore them and you will have a great time. I went in January, so there was about eight inches of snow on the road, and although previous cars had made tire tracks, it was still somewhat difficult for a car without big tires of four-wheel drive. These roads are not plowed in the winter. The trail to the hot springs was very mild and well maintained, more like a nature walk. There was snow on some parts of the trail and all over the hill sides. The water level was high and from the bridge one can look down at the rushing stream and it is truly breathtaking. At the springs, there are outhouse toilets that stink really bad - even in the winter, a large communal bathing area, and four private shacks. The communal area is covered and without walls, and features one huge tub and four individual tubs capable of holding one to two people end to end. The private shacks each have one tub that is the same size as the individual tubs in the communal room; they also have roofs and walls. There is no user fee, no parks and recreational officers on staff, and apparently one can go anytime of the day or season. There was evidence of candles having been burned in the private shacks. People brought their dogs and even small children and everybody, with the exception of the aforementioned naked guy, was pleasant and/or kept to themselves. Visiting a hot springs was an enoyable and interesting experience and I would recommend the Bagby Hot Springs to anyone looking to try it out.
