Travertine Hot Springs

USGS map: Bodie (15 min)

Located south of Bridgeport, CA, along the eastern front of the Sierra. holds The largest, hottest spring flows into a volunteer-built concrete pool that will comfortably hold four or more adults. Just below this, a shallow pool contains a weak flow. Finally, and most spectacularly, another spring issues from atop a ridge of ancient travertine, flowing along it until cascading into several handmade pools of varying temperatures. A panoramic view completes the experience. Relatively well known, so don't expect solitude.
