RE: Bailey Bay Hot Springs

In regards to Bailey Bay Hot Springs, my husband and I tried to hike up to the hot springs last summer. Unfortunately the trail we found was in a sorry state of disrepair. The rope crossing the creek was frayed and loose (and dangerous!) and a large landslide had taken out the entire trail right after the waterfall, ending our journey since we had no way of circumventing the landslide. Large parts of the trail was nothing more than mud pits.

We noted the condition and landslide in the log book at the base of the trail. We would like to know if the landslide was removed since I would love to see what the rage is all about!

If the landslide has not been removed, then I'm afraid it's too late for the general public to "save" access to the hot springs.
