    Route Description for Umpqua Hot Springs Trail

    If you want to experience the relaxation and natural beauty of the Umpqua Hot Springs, you will need to arrive early, as the parking lot fills up very quickly during the summer months (at least parking is free!). It is also a popular spot with a wide variety of outdoor enthusiasts, including those of the clothing-optional variety; if that isn’t your thing, be sure to steer clear!

    If you are fine to navigate the above mentioned points and want to slip into the relaxing waters of the geothermal pools, then the Umpqua Hot Springs Trail is the perfect option to explore in Oregon. If you take your time walking along the short path and enjoying the surrounding Pacific Northwest landscape, there’s no reason why you can’t turn this into a fun half-day adventure.
    Setting out from the parking area, you will make your way northwest toward the rushing sounds of the North Umpqua River. Here, you will cross over the 6ft wide bride and admire the winding river, before continuing along the trail.

    Now walking north, keep right at the fork in the path and continue on through the forest to quickly arrive at the hot springs. The different pools vary in temperature, so pick the one that feels best for you and slip in for a comfortable soak while enjoying the surrounding views.

    After you’ve wrapped up your time in the water, simply head back along the same trail to return to the parking area where you began your adventure along the Umpqua Hot Springs Trail. If you are after another excursion in the area, be sure to check out the nearby Toketee Falls Hike.
