Although the Springs are located a ways outside of Estacada, visiting them is a uniquely Portland thing to do. I had been wanting to go for years, and finally made the drive this Monday. What a great place! The hike is almost completely level on a well-maintained trail. There are two types of tubs. Some are like giant wine barrels and some are hollowed out logs, big enough for two people. One tub fits four to five people. The day we were there, there was no wait for a tub.
It is a great feeling soaking in the warm water out in the middle of the forest. I would love to go back at night. It has a rustic vibe that must be super cool in candle light. The tubs are clothing optional and there was a couple who chose to go natural the afternoon we were there. If that is offensive to you, it would be better to stay away.
It is supposed to be alcohol free, but the afternoon we were there this was not being enforced. It wasn't a big party or anything. Just people relaxing in a hot tub with beer or wine.
I highly recommend this activity. Between the drive, the hike and the soaking, it was a full day.
