This hike goes through one of the last stands of Old Growth Forest in Oregon, along windy ridges, through burned out slopes, across talus rubble fields, and past serene blue lakes. Connects Bagby Trail (544) to Twin Lakes Trail (573) to Mother Lode Trail (558) and Pansy Lake (551).

If you hike this during the summer months you'll definitely have to wait in line.

For this discussion, I will say there are two types of hikers at this location. The day hiker and the night hiker, the night hikers can be volatile. They go, and I am not saying this is everyone, but they are there to party. Some drink, smoke marijuana, and some do both.
However, this most important rule I live by. There are hippies in Oregon and the last person to use that tub may have been his/her first bath in months. There are cleaning brushes there. So, clean the tub before using them. I have been there many times, 1984 to 2009.

Great hike in an out. Didn't get into the spring tubs but really enjoyed the vistas while we hiked along the river.

Beautiful hike but the tubs were anticlimactic. Not all tubs have plugs, good luck.

Nice easy hike. The hot springs at the top are very relaxing. Early spring/late winter when the snow is still on the ground is my favorite time for this hike.

been going to bagbe for over 20years. I prefer late fall and winter. cold clear nights, and not many people if any. high possibility of seeing naked folk, so keep that in mind.

Went on a random Tuesday afternoon and took the dogs. Nice easy trail and no waiting for a tub!

Way too many people but that was my fault for going up on Memorial Day. Kind of a let down compared to having terwilager hot springs all to myself.
