Umpqua Hot Springs

Umpqua Hot Springs Professional Review and Guide

"A series of soaking pools atop a 100-foot terrace that overlooks the North Umpqua River. Few hot springs in the Pacific Northwest are as scenic as Umpqua. Over thousands of years the mineral water on the banks of the North Umpqua River has deposited a travertine mound more than 100 feet tall. The hot springs emerge from the top of this terrace and flow into four soaking pools.

The main pool, enclosed by a three- sided log shelter, is approximately 5 feet wide by 8 feet long and 2 to 3 feet deep. It can easily hold four or five people. This is the most popular pool, both because of the comfortable soaking temperature and the view of the river valley."

This is a truly wonderful place, with multiple pools cut into the hillside. It is hidden along a winding hilly footpath, across the river from a car park. The car park itself is a long winding route off the road in a seriously potholed road, which makes it a little rough on your car and tough to get to. The hike to the springs is steep but short. When we arrived it was quiet and we got a lovely pond to ourselves, although it got busier later. The pools are separated far enough from one another that everyone can co-exist pretty comfortably. The pools vary in temperature -- some of the pools are hot, some are warm, while others are a little too cool for the weather we experienced that day. The views across the valley are stunning and the trees smell lovely. Anytime you visit the hot springs you will most likely smell a lot of weed, too. People like to smoke marijuana and get naked there, so be aware if pot and nudity are outside your comfort zone. I'm so happy we made the trip and will return to the relaxing pools when I am exploring the Umpqua National Forest again.
