Soak at Baker Hot Springs

0.6 miles  - Out-and-Back Trail

Added by The Outbound Collective

Relax in these warm waters while in a quiet forest setting. Only a short and easy hike from the car.

This easy to access and free of use pool is around or just below 100 degrees. The water does have a sulfur smell and a considerable amount of silt, which washes off easily.

In Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest, follow Forest Service Road 1130 to the Swift Creek Trailhead, keeping an eye out for pot holes. From there it's a short hike to the springs.

Wrong spot!

Drove all around this area (pretty!) but no ‘baker got springs’. pin is in Oregon, but the description better fits where I put in Google. Although I highly recommend the drive through the middle fork, if you are seeking hot springs you shall be disappointed.
