Ritter Hot Springs Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"A historic overnight stop on the old stagecoach road between Pendleton and John Day. Present-day visitors delight in the same mineral water and rustic lodging that stagecoach passengers enjoyed one hundred years ago. The 40-by-60-foot swimming pool is kept around 85 degrees F, a comfortable temperature for swimming during the May to October resort season.

For a warmer soak take the footbridge across the Middle Fork of the John Day River. A hundred yards up the hill from the riverbank are four private soaking rooms in a dilapidated cinder-block building (which is near the source of the hot springs). These soaking rooms can be filled with hot water to bring them up to a toasty 106 degrees F. Check with the staff (who usually are hanging around the general store) before using these soaking rooms to be sure they are available."
