Ronja - by Astrid Lindgren

Bagby is a great place to go hang out with some friends or a romantic date for a couple. Soup in the hot springs after a beatiful hike. The picture speak for themselves. It's not that easy to find, so here's good directions and also great links...

Bagby Directions

The road is 2-lane paved all the way to the parking area at 2000' elevation. If there is a chance of snow at that elevation call Estacada Ranger Station at (503) 630-6861 for road conditions.

Take I205 to the Estacada exit, and follow Oregon 224 to Estacada. You could stop at the Estacada Ranger Station on the right as you enter Estacada and buy a map if you wish. Continue on through Estacada on OR224 about 25 miles and pass Ripplebrook Ranger Station. All major intersections beyond Ripplebrook are signed to Bagby at or just beyond the intersection. 1/2 mile past Ripplebrook is the Timothy Lake junction. Bear right on Forest Service Road 46. In about 3 miles turn right onto FS63. In about 4 miles turn right on FS70 and go about 6 miles to the parking area. The hike is an easy 1 1/2 miles, and is regularly done by flashlight as the trail is wide and easy to follow.
