The Hot Spring:

this hot springs is one of a kind, perfect for a day soak in the sun.  the water comes out around 102 cooling to 100 for soaking, there are 3 pools to soak in all around the same temp, sentence drags on... the smallest one is slightly hotter than the other two with the river adjacent to use as a cold plunge,  clothing optional although sometimes ass holes go down there and trip on the nudist.

They're off of Matillija

They're off of Matillija Road, about 1.5 miles from Highway 33, on the left near a big turn out just before the road breifly narrows to a 1-car at a time, 1-lane road.  


Unfortunately, the hot springs are not accessible as of July 2015.  They were under scrutiny by the county officials because of drug and alcohol use at the springs, some injuries, and trash.   A new owner tried to restore them in 2012, and get them to be reopened to the public.  They were not able to do so.  As such, the county sherriff tickets/arrests truspassers, and there is a full-time caretaker on the property.  It's sad that these wonderful springs got trashed, and have remained inaccessible to the public for years.
