Details

Expect to pay the property owner $5 to park in his parking lot for this hike. It's going to be a 2 miles downhill hike to the hot springs so feel free to pack a hefty lunch and be sure to bring cold beverage as this is a high desert environment.

*Just a heads up, you may see nudists at the spring at this location so if that sort of thing offends you, this might not be the hike for you!

We will soak at the springs for about an hour or so, eat lunch, and then hike back down. After the hike is over, some members of the group will go camping at North Shore Campground at Lake Arrowhead. $15 pre-sales for campout available separately, contact Pete for ticket link.

"A cluster of natural hot springs in an isolated canyon in the high desert. Deep Creek has become a favorite spot for those who like to go without clothing. Requires a gradual 6-mile hike or a steeper 2-mile one. The Deep Creek Hot Springs are quite a find and will amaze you once you get there. Completely natural and undeveloped, the springs have become popular for obvious reasons. The water is generally clear and an almost perfect temperature (averaging 105 degrees F.), with several pools from which to choose. As with so many hot springs in this book, Deep Creek was once relatively unknown, but has become heavily visited. Visitors have done a good job of keeping this area pristine, however, free from trash and vandalism. As noted, many of the more recent (and more numerous) visitors to the spring prefer to go without clothing, in and out of the pools.
