Devil's Bathtub & Waterfall, The

Devil’s Fork Loop Trail is per­fect for the true back coun­try enthu­si­asts who are will­ing to get their feet wet. All hik­ers should be pre­pared to scram­ble over boul­ders, and should plan their vis­it dur­ing rel­a­tive­ly low water con­di­tions. The high­light of the trail is the spec­tac­u­lar Devil’s Bath­tub, a nat­u­ral­ly smooth swim­ming hole.

After the first creek cross­ing, you have the option of going right or left. The For­est Ser­vice has the sign point­ing both ways to the Devil’s Bath­tub, but the mileage is not marked. To the right is sev­en miles round trip, but with no creek cross­ings. To the left is the short­er and more heav­i­ly trav­eled trail with the 13 creek cross­ings.

Week­days are the best time to vis­it Devil’s Bath­tub due to it pop­u­lar­i­ty. 

Vis­i­tors should not park along the road between the no park­ing signs or on pri­vate prop­er­ty.  

Length: 7.2 miles round trip (option­al 1.8 addi­tion­al miles (or more) up one way)
