A scenic 8.2 mile hike round trip from the Ranger Station to Belknap Hot Springs Resort. The hot pools at the resort rent for $7 for one hour, and the scenic bus ride is just $3 round trip. Great way to relax midway through a beautiful hike.
Meet at the Library, which is right next to the LTD Station. You can park in the parking garages on Saturdays for free. The bus will leave at 8:30AM, so be on time. The bus will drop us off at the Ranger Station up the McKenzie at 9:48AM. We will then hike to Belknap Hot Springs Resort. It took us about two hours last time, with stops along the way and pictures. Belknap Hot Springs Resort has restrooms, tables for us to sit and enjoy our lunches at, various concessions, along with showers and changing rooms. We will then hike back to the Ranger Station in hopes of being there around 5:30PM, well ahead of the departing time of 6:03PM. I know that is arriving a half hour before the bus arrives, but it's best to be early to get back to catch the last bus for the day. Once back at the Ranger Station we can sit together, talk, maybe enjoy some snacks together before the bus comes at 6:03PM.
Please dress accordingly for seasonal weather conditions. Avoid cotton and bring your 10 essentials in a day pack. Be sure to bring a swim suit for the hot springs and a towel. Spare merino wool socks are always good to add in to your pack. Also warm clothes to switch into afterwards.
