This is the perfect winter hike! The hot water feels better the colder it is out, don't let winter stop you from hiking! We will meet up and drive to the trail head to park. The hike down is almost three miles. Most of the hike is medium difficulty with small ups and downs with only a 1/4 mile of very steep hiking down at the end. The quarter mile is definitely difficult so don't expect an easy hike. (You will need shoes with good grip, trekking poles are a good idea too if you slip easily). Once we reach the hot springs be ready to get in your bathing suit and enjoy the naturally hot and soothing pools! They can be deep enough to swim in parts and also have nice rocks to just sit on and relax. If you get too warm you can always jump in the creek that is right next to us to cool down. If you are interested you can do a little contrast bath therapy which just means hopping back and forth from the cold water to the hot. Contrast therapy is very good for circulation, the lymph system, muscle soreness, and stress! After we're done swimming we will climb the same three miles back to the cars. (6 miles total hiking). The climb is steep we will be going up about 1,300 feet. I will also take pictures using my camera if you want, candid and posed, to capture the memories of your day and send them to you after the hike.
I moved to the mountain 21 years ago and am so happy I did! I love exploring and photographing my beautiful mountain. We have a lot a great trails and I really enjoy helping others to get to experience the fun and excitement of hiking without fear of getting lost or stuck. By taking pictures of your hike I get to combine my passions and help you get a great souvenir!

The goal of the hike is to reach the Deep Creek Hot Springs where you can swim in the cool creek or just sit and relax in the naturally hot and soothing hot pools or chill on the sandy beach. You can practice contrast therapy or just enjoy this beautiful, hidden, natural attraction and let your stress fall away!
最多可有10位年满11周岁的参与者参加。 No experience required, just make sure you are willing and stubborn enough to hike for a few hours. Three miles each way. And able to handle 1/4 mile of very steep, slippery trail both directions. Good stamina helps but we can…
Being a hot spring the creek often has nude guests visiting. So if you are not comfortable with nudity you may need to book a week day to more likely get the place to ourselves. I'm am very flexible with times and dates, feel free to ask me.
