Travertine Hot Springs

Travertine Hot Springs Professional Review and Guide

"A series of natural hot springs, bolstered to provide several bathing opportunities. Popular in the Eastern Sierras, Travertine Hot Springs are most notable because of the multicolored travertine formations associated with the pools. Travertine Hot Springs offers several soaking opportunities and presents intriguing geology in a beautiful setting. The upper hot spring (the first you come to) has a small concrete pool built adjacent to it. This pool presents the best soaking opportunity, since it is about 105 degrees F. and shaped like a bathtub. It’s also the most popular spring, however. The lower pools are formed from water dripping off the ridge of travertine into small, crude pools constructed by hot springs users. There are several of these pools, ranging in temperature from 105 to 90 degrees F., and all are only a foot or two deep. The water is also a little murky here, but who cares? The view is fantastic. Primitive, although several pools have been dug to provide better soaking opportunities."

Nearly perfect soaking experience after dusk. Easy to find, drive up to the semi-natural hot spring. If you want an all natural hot spring the at some riverbank go to buckeye that is close by.
