Bagby Hot Springs is located about 45 minutes South East of Estacada, Oregon. After the beautiful drive up the Clackamas River Basin on Hwy 224, you turn South and follow the Collawash River. There is a parking lot and campground located at the trailhead bearing the name “Bagby Trailhead”. The campground is to the left when entering the parking lot and is commonly known as “Nohorn Campground”. The only services at the trailhead are two outhouses.
To reach Bagby Hot Springs just follow the trail. You will immediately cross a footbridge over the Collawash River. The trail will lead you on a wonderful, beautiful hike through a Late Successional Reserve Forest. It will follow the banks of the clear water of the Hot Springs Fork of the Collawash River. Be sure to bring a camera for spectacular sights. It is about a 1.5 miles from the trailhead to the springs and takes about 45 minutes to hike. The hot springs are open 24 hours.
