Buckeye Hot Springs

Buckeye Hot Springs Professional Review and Guide

"Two hot springs sources feeding two soaking pools adjacent to a clear stream on the eastern slope of the Sierras. Both pools offer excellent bathing opportunities. The two main sources at Buckeye Hot Springs emerge from the side of the hill and cool rapidly at they flow downhill. In cold weather the hot springs will be easy to spot with all the steam. In warmer weather look for color changes on the side of the hill, where algae is growing. One of the sources flows into a 7- by 3-foot pool that maintains a temperature of about 100 degrees F. The other source is larger and flows into the creek where it has been dammed up with rocks, forming several pools. Each of these pools differs slightly in temperature, ranging from 110 to 95 degrees F. The temperature will vary depending upon the amount of creek water flowing into the pools. The largest pool is under the overhang created by the hot springs water, and offers a cave-like setting. The water coming off the overhang also produces a small waterfall."

Hot springs have been directed into pools along a cold creek. There were several pools the last time I was there with a range of water temps. It was nice, but there were a fair number of people there.
