What a great discovery! Had a blast in the Jeep driving in via Juniper Flats. Snacked off the Holly Cherry bush on the way down and enjoyed a great swim and soak.

I knew to expect some amazing hot springs, but I didn’t know the hike itself would be spectacular as well. It’s a fairly easy hike, but I’m sure it’s more brutal when it’s super hot out (I went on a relatively cool day).

There are multiple small hot springs scattered around a swimming hole. Absolutely amazing! We had fun hopping from one to another and testing out the different water temperatures. We were able to sit in the hottest one for plenty of time (other reviewers have said only a few seconds so maybe the temp changes).

This is an amazing experience. my family's come here for years but I just went for my 2nd time. this time my 5 year old daughter came along. She walked every step of the way on her own. The hot springs were perfect and it was perfect at night.

Note, bring plenty of water and a purification system and refile from the creek before you go back up. If you stay the night, fires are not allowed but happen. PLEASE PACK OUT YOUR TRASH.

Unbelievable. Best Springs ive been to thus far. Highly recommend. VERY STEEP ON THE WAY BACK UP. Beautiful scenery, MANY NAKED DUDES. Cool.

Follow this map not google maps. Make sure to park at Bowen Ranch. Pull up to the window, where a grumpy man will charge you 5$ per person. I understand why he is grumpy though due to some irresponsible hikers who go here. Follow the map that he gives you and the most walked path.

Take lots of water, sunscreen and food. We had to help some fellow hikers that got lost and were able to get back on the actual trail get airlifted out of there due to dehydration. Be prepared, especially during the summer!

Pools were beautiful! Very hot during the summer, we weren't able to stay in them for more that a few seconds.

Fair amount of nudist and weed smokers. Not my cup of tea, but it was a good one time hike. Highly recommend going at least once to see the hot spring pools (:

I love this place. Make sure you take lots of water and food.

First time there.. first you stop at a ranch , they charge $5.00 for each person . You park on is property but it's safe to park there.. then it's a 2 mile hike that's 45 minutes going downhill uphill took us 1hr.. take water and snacks... and some shorts to take a swim... p.s. There nude ..but I had a great time .. I will be back but more in shape to take that hike again....

My all-time perfect Sunday. No glass no trash no Tanlines

Went there yesterday and it was pretty nice for a first time visit! Met a lot of cool people and of course, there were people who went nude. I personally didn't mind, nothing wrong with bodies when we all have them. We started from Bowen Ranch, the road was very bumpy and we almost got stuck in the sand. The hike down wasn't bad at all, but there were times where we had to slide down because of the downhill sandy parts of the trail. The water was pretty warm when we got to the creek, so I didn't go into the springs because of them obviously being higher in temperature. But they were nice to look at. Swam around in the creek and was there for about two hours. We left at around 1:30 and didn't get back to the ranch until just about 3:00. For water, we brought a 1.5 liter, a 32oz, and a 24oz water and even that wasn't enough. Thank goodness for the people we met down at the creek, they gave us an extra Dasani regular size water bottle in addition to the 1.5 liter we had left and it was the exact amount we needed or else we would have ran out on the hike back. Definitely don't underestimate how much water you're bringing!! It was nice for a first visit, but I probabaly wouldn't come back unless I get more experienced in doing these kinds of trails more often and if it's around the spring/fall/winter. I personally can't handle the heat so this is not something I would do again in the summer

So much fun!! The hot springs are worth the distance. Just make sure to bring a lot of water, sunscreen, and snacks! I wouldn't say that it is a family hike though; there are naked people and the hike is pretty vigorous.

Went there last week for the first time. Bowen ranch guy was not so happy.It was my first time there. Lady was nice. Go through somewhere else if you can. Dirt road will take you at least 30 min with the small car.
