Important Information

The Scenic Hot Springs trailhead is located about 10 miles east of the town of Skykomish, and the Hot Springs themselves are at the end of a 1.5-mile uphill hike with about 1100 feet of elevation gain.

The gate is closed, so please park in the free space on the right side of the forest road before the gate.  There is limited parking there and vandalism has been a problem in the past so be careful. Do not park on the highway: you will be ticketed or towed. The best place to park for safety reasons is the railroad construction yard near the Tye River Bridge, a little way back.

Travel time from Seattle is approximately 1.5 hours, depending on traffic conditions.
