Best hot springs in the state. Clothing optional. Definitely don’t go w out a reservation. Pools at the top are a steep uphill hike w beautiful views and warm pools at the end. Several pools to enjoy around the property. The hike to the bat cave should be listed on here- it is only slightly challenging at the end and so worth the trip. Along the way are foundations and pieces of the orient iron mine that operated over 60 years ago.

This is misleading. There are miles and miles of trails at VVHS, not to mention off-trail possibilities.

The hike to the bat-cave is a must do if you are there July/August time frame to see the bat out flight at dusk.

This place is a true gem. It’s worth staying for a weekend!

Trail was short, but nice views and the hot spring at the top was very natural and beautiful.
