Relax at Barnes Warm Springs

Rate this Adventure Oregon Barnes Warm Springs

Added by The Outbound Collective

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.
