Olympic Hot Springs
Not a developed resort, Olympic Hot Springs consists of 7 natural hot springs that range in temperature from mildly warm to a very hot 138 degrees. These are very primitive, with muddy or rocky bottoms, and average about a foot deep. They are not maintained by the park or county and can present concerns about bacteria from stagnant water, so bathe at your own risk, especially in the summertime.
- Getting Here: Travel west on Highway 101 from Port Angeles and turn left on Olympic Hot Springs Road. You must hike the 2.5 mile (easy) Olympic Hot Springs Trail to reach the natural pools.
