The Umpqua Hot Springs Trail is a short 0.3 mile hike to the springs. A "tub" is hewn out of the travertine deposits surrounding the springs. The springs, at a temperature of 108 degrees, is located on a bare rock face 150 feet above the North Umpqua River. From the tub, there is a view of Surprise Falls across the river.
The Jigokudani Hot Springs in Nagano Prefecture, Japan is most famous for its so called “snow monkeys” — wild Japanese monkeys enjoying the naturally hot waters alongside the human visitors. More than one hundred Macaques --Japan's indigenous monkeys-- live in the Jigokudani Monkey Park, located in a valley called the "Hell Valley" for the volcanic activities observed there.
