It was fun! The creek is awesome, the water is cool and refreshing and the hot springs were like built in hot tubs! Expect to see nudity, lots of skinny dippers! We went on a time crunch ( I had to be at work by 3pm and we arrived at 10:30am). The hike down took about 40-45 minutes, we second guessed our direction a few times otherwise it would have been much quicker to get down. The way up took about 45 minutes, this is with 3-4 breaks to catch our breath). Started our hike at 10:30 got down to the creek at 11:05 swam for about 15 minutes headed back up around 11:30 reached our car at 12:15! It was fun but reserve a day for it to make it a more enjoyable experience! We will definitely go back again with no time limit

This is my favorite place ! The hike up is hard but always enjoy my time down there

Almost no shade and returning pass was all the way uphill. Especially after taking hot springs, it was tiring to walk up the hill. Also you should know that this trail has so many naked hikers, not only at the springs but also from parking spot to the springs.

it's just beautiful, the tiring hike is so worth went you get to the springs

We entered through Bowen Ranch rd and parked. Next time i'd stay the night. On the hike down i was alerted by another hiker of all the naked people that would be down there and to blindfold my son (8yrs old). As we trailed down we passed a man and woman whom were naked walking with their backpacks on. we asked how much longer and then proceeded. When we arrived the ratio of naked vs. clothed was about 7 naked and maybe 12 clothed. Water was surprisingly clear but cold, except for hot springs of course. The area was clean and people were nice, a good amount of non-locals. As far as blindfolding my son, which i considered a possibility before i arrived i did not do. There was nothing shameful about seeing naked people relaxing in the water. He handled it very well, i was proud of him. He didn't gauke or stare. It definately fulfilled my expectations. i can't wait to go back. although the hike up is definately something to be prepared for, ITS A HIKE!

Should have said it cost $5 to enter! I drove all the way there just to not be able to enter!

Great place to visit!

awesome hike. Go during the week to avoid crowds. Oh yeah, and be prepared for naked old dudes.

Nice naked mellow people! Haha Went on Tusday and this place was amazing. Downhill hike there and uphill back. Leg Day for sure! the off-road part was bumpy but fun. Subie life! and u don't need a lifted or AWD vehicle. Just absolutely No Stanced cars unless you want your front bumper to come off! Not much trash like other reviews. They keeping up with the trash which is awesome. Definitely gonna come back!

Very beautiful hike and the hot springs were awesome. Only thing that was bad was people leave behind so much trash. People clean up after yourself and preserve these beautiful places.

we made it!!! don't follow your GPS unless you can use a map and have 4x4

second you totally need to know a lot of people will be there

also naked people will be there.

it's a nice downhill hike to get there.
the hike back is tough.

if your OK with these things do this hike it really pretty
