The pool is actually situated inside the Baumgartner campgrounds. The campgrounds are currently closed for improvements but you can still access the area by foot. It's just a short walk down a scenic road, not really a hike imo.

We saw several people leaving the pool area on our walk up and hoped to have a quiet soak. Alas, there were still 6 adults and a few children in the pool when we arrived. So we quietly waited1/2 hr for them to finish. Soon as we finally hopped in another group showed up and also hopped in...

Loved the hike. If your out of shape it will take you about 90 minutes. We make the first lake in 50. Nice views as well!

Great hike with good trails and markers. There's about 9 lakes in the area so it's fun to go see them all!

Amazing hidden lakes just above, although the various trail heads were grown over. Beautiful! Since the hike was easy, and pretty short, we decided to go further and hike Shell Rock Peak as well.

Wonderful hike. Steep hike in but worth the view! The wild flowers were breathtaking and the lakes are crystal clear.

Baumgartner is a nice hot spring that requires a short hike to access. It's developed (cement pool), but the times I've gone there was nobody else there, and the area was well kept and clean.

Great for a day or longer to spend visiting several lakes. The drive in can be a bit rough, not to bad if you go from Pine, but expect to spend almost 20 miles on dirt roads. The start of the trail has a small parking lot so get there early on a weekend and expect to start up hill from the beginning. Once you reach the high point its fairly easy going down into the valley, but coming back out means going back up again.
