It is not far from the main road.. and very very nice to see.. this geological site has a view from the top, then you can do the trail that is small and paved!
We came here on a sunny, but windy and 40s day, and the nicely-graded road from highway 395, the major north-south route, led to this strange, haunting environment. Trout fishermen, soon enough when the season begins at the end of April, can only use artificial lures and non-harming hooks for this catch-and-release place. The sun was brilliant, the water all... 更多
Not far away from the street is the hot creek geological site. The drive there is only paved at the beginning after that comes a dirt road that leads to the parking lot with restrooms. From the parking lot leads a small trail to the creek and river. It's a little bit smelly but that's what you expect on a... 更多
Worth the stop, we took a lot of photos here and walked all the way down to the bottom and a bit further than that. There was an elderly man with a walker who was fly fishing at the bottom. After making the hike back up, I couldn't believe that I was that our of shape and that he was... 更多
Driving back to LA, this is worth a 30 min detour. Turn off 395 at the road to the airport. Go past airport a couple of miles. There are a couple parking lots. We followed sign to Hot Creek. There is an overlook down to some pretty colored hot springs. There is also a trail down for a closer look.... 更多

It is an amazing place to visit, we came in February. I am sure it is great all year long. Getting to it is not that easy, would recommend an SUV
We visited the Forest Service's facility in Mammoth Lakes and were warned to NOT take a dip in Hot Creek. Geyser activity is peaking and temps exceed 200 degrees in places. The literature from the U.S. Geological Survey (U.S.G.S.) and the Forest Service have published data that the Long Valley Caldera's volcanic activity makes these thermal springs unpredictable; parts of... 更多
Hot Creek is one of those places you should see once but don't need to see again. It's an interesting geological feature that you can't have direct access to for safety reasons. I understand that the fishing is great further down the creek (but is catch and release only).
