A small pool at the end of a quarter-mile hike along the tranquil Wall Creek deep within the Willamette National Forest northeast of Oakridge.
Wall Creek may or may not be the optimal temperature for a hot soak depending on the season. It can vary from lukewarm to 98 or so degrees based on the flow rate of hot water rising up from the bottom of the only soakable pool.
Spring runoff typically submerges the main hot pool until mid-late June or July depending on the level of snowmelt.

A warm spring at best and pretty muddy to boot, but a good foot soaker after a full day of hiking.
Tried Wall Creek this morning and found a rootball from a down tree blocking Forest Rd. 24 1/4 in. A jog around the left was made, but it was greasy and muddy. Just sayin…
When I visited the Wall Creek Hot Springs on Dec. 27th, 2012 the “hot springs” were very cold. The water temperature was probably 65 degrees. Also, there was a down tree blocking the road, which added 1/2 mile to the hike. Don’t waste your time visiting these hot springs.
No, this is actually just a warm spring and not much good for soaking but it is a beautiful short hike along a pristine creek that is as green and lush as any you will ever see. the deer trails above the pool offer the entertainment
I have a lot of pics but don’t know how to post them

Thanks, Dan! Comments have been upgraded and now support picture uploading.
Enjoyed a nice soak here a couple days ago. Beautiful hike, no trash at the trailhead, on the trail or in the pool area. I always pick up trash pre-soak, it makes for a much better experience. The water was definitely warmer the second day with a lot more bubbles visible. Only had to wait about 10 minutes to use the pool the first day and shared it with a group of friendly ladies on the second.
