This was a round trip 8 mile hike to the hot springs and back. The trailhead was clear and only saw two folks until we got to the hot springs. Lots of folks there, but friendly and not dirty.

Awesome trail. Very green ferns, pine, and deciduous mixed. Only a few, older downed trees.

Good hike, with the hot springs as a wonderful hike-in destination. Our older dog needed some help jumping the downed trees along the way. It does get dusty/slippery closer to the hot springs—you should have some decent grip for that point on an otherwise easy-going trail.

I loved visiting the hot springs! You can definitely make this trail shorter if you continue up the road to the parking lot. Just be sure to leave no trace— pack out what you pack in!!

Awesome trail! Beautiful views of the river, hillsides, and trees. I started at the campground trailhead at tokatee lake and ran to the hot springs and back. Started out at 67F around 10am then by the time I got back it was 80 degrees, but there was lots of shade so I barely felt the heat at all. No fallen logs in the way, though my clumsy self tripped over some tree roots. There were a couple spots where I could get down to the river and stick my feet in. Highly recommend.

Beautiful trees, moss everywhere, nice mellow grade change, With one of the best Hot Springs I have known at the end of the trail.

I would rate this trail as easy. It was so beautiful, but a little confusing. we started at the hot springs trailhead. Go over the bridge and turn right, the path will "y" when you see the sign that says "hot springs" and points to the right. it's hard to see that there is a y there as you're coming up an incline and there is no sign saying anything goes to the right. About half way in you'll be dumped onto a road, again with no signage. Go left over the overpass and a trail will open up to your right. About 100 feet in on the trail you will finally see a sign saying tokatee lake is 2 miles.

I started at the Toketee Lake trailhead and trail-ran up to the hot springs and back. It was really beautiful. There was one section close to the hot springs trail junction where there was a big landslide and a fallen tree. Had to scramble uphill around the tree trunk and scramble back down on loose rock. It was definitely do-able, though, just use caution.

An amazing 8.7 miles round trip trial to the hot springs from a parking lot near Toketee fall, with 1,676 elevation gain. It's trail for those who want to experience what Oregon Trail is all about via "sole" :)

First to Review

I am a big fan of trails where I can get a soak in after (or before), heck if I could be in a hot spring on my bike I would be in heaven.
