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.
