Baker Hot Spring

Baker Hot Spring Professional Review and Guide

"An easily accessible soaking pool in a forest glen surrounded by cedars and Douglas fir. After being jostled on the bumpy forest road that leads to the parking area, you’ll savor the hushed quiet of the footpath that passes through a grove of old-growth cedar trees.

The ten-minute walk ends in a cathedral of Douglas fir, maple, and cedar that surrounds the 15-foot-diameter soaking pool. In heavy snow years the hiking may be difficult."

I would advise against this particular hot springs in the winter time, unless you want to snow shoe or x-country ski in. The road leading up to it isn't that bad, but it ends about 6 miles before the Forest Road turn off. We were not prepared for this!
hike is easy and followable. the road is attrocious, i drove a sedan and it bottomed out a couple times due to the depth of potholes. Otherwise it was worth it water temp is great not too hot. Saw two couples while there all were nude, guess this is a nude hot springs.
The above description of this hot spring is VERY accurate including the rough road, short trail, and great spring. Have fun.
