Long Description:
"This 3.2 mile roundtrip hike leads to a beautiful natural feature, Devil's Bathtub, which makes for a great swimming hole on the warmer days.
The Devil’s Bathtub is a deep pool of blue-green water known for being a great swimming hole and a beautiful natural feature. This hike is a 3.2 mile out and back hike with 250 feet elevation gain. There are at least 15 stream crossings, so extreme caution should be taken during periods of medium-to-high flow as the stream crossings may be slippery and submerged.

This hike has gotten very crowded recently so be prepared for large crowds on this hike. Please be respectful of the no trespassing signs on the road to the trailhead -- people who park by these signs may be towed. The road to the trailhead is also very muddy and rutted, so it may be difficult for some cars with low clearance to get to the trailhead.

The trail begins on an old rail bed and quickly descends down to the first stream crossing. After this stream crossing, be sure to stay to the left to remain on the trail to Devil’s Bathtub and not the Devil’s Fork Loop Trail which breaks off to the right. The trail will skirt the stream and cross it another 14-15 times until you reach a large blue-green pool with a small waterfall that is a good swimming hole. Many people think this is the Devil’s Bathtub, but to reach the true Bathtub, continue on the trail another 200 feet or so. It is a 10 ft long by 3 feet wide deep blue-green pool with a small waterfall feeding it.

Once done exploring the bathtub, simply retrace your steps the 1.6 miles back to your car."
