Relax at Barnes Warm Springs

Rate this Adventure Oregon Barnes Warm Springs

Added by

This free use hot spring, located near Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, is great for animal lovers.

Close to the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge and the Steens Mountains, this is a great spot for wildlife spotting, although it is also little buggy. A short hike will lead you to this secluded hot spring. The temperature is less than 100, and there is no use fee.

This trail is an easy out and back from either the west or east side of Forest Park. The east trailhead is off NW Skyline Blvd, on Saltzman Road, which is a dirt/gravel road like the trail.
