Blayney Meadows Hot Springs Trail

Blayney Meadows Hot Springs Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Because of a dangerous ford of the South Fork San Joaquin River, the extremely popular Blayney Meadows Hot Springs is a late-summer destination. However, if you skip the hot springs and simply enjoy a hike in the scenic South Fork River valley to excellent fishing, wide meadows, and shady riverside campsites, then this trail is ideal from the time the snow melts in June until it falls again in October. The hot springs hike is long but not strenuous. In midsummer, this 18-mile trip can be shortened to 8 miles by taking advantage of the hikers’ ferry up Florence Lake."

This isn't a hard hike but it's long. We did the easier way by taking the ferry which made it a much shorter trip. The wilderness area is beautiful and the hot springs are a real treat. There's a beautiful meadow by the springs with views of the cliffs above. It is such a relaxing place.
