The Eastern Sierra is chockfull of bubbling hot springs waiting to be soaked in. I mean, really, you can’t beat the soothing hot temperatures and mountain views and the price (free).
I stopped by a few in the Mammoth Lakes area on the way home from my 25th birthday extravaganza so I could share with you! There’s a dirt road that will take you to the majority of them. You’ll just need a bit of clearance. I won’t publicly post directions, but get in touch if you’re unable to find them. These are fairly well known, and tons of beta is available on the internet.
