From Bridgeport, you drive 7 miles to Doc & Als and then 2.5 miles down dusty dirt road. Then hike down steep trail to reach hot springs. They are quite small and average. Can get very crowded. Not sure worth the effort.

Went there with my boyfriend and it was really neat! It's a bit of a drive getting to it on the dirt road, then once you're there you have to walk down a rocky/sandy hill to get down to the springs. But they are really nice! And a river runs along side them. There are a handful of pools and... More

We drove a few miles on a dirt road, then parked at the top of the hill and walked down a dry gulley to the hot springs. It was a challenge scramble down in flip-flops. I definitely recommend wearing hiking shoes. There are three pools surrounded by rocks. The pools are filled with the hot spring water that flows down... More

I like these springs, as they are a bit harder to get to. There are 2 roads you can take to get here. Either from 395 just west of Bridgeport (take the turn for buckeye road). This is a single lane dirt road that contours with the mountain and will bring you to the top of buckeye creek (turn off... More

A bit hard to get to, as you have to drive on a dirt road for several miles past Doc and Al's. It's at the entrance to Buckeye Canyon, just east of the campground. There are a couple of pools right on the creek. You have to walk down a path, but well worth the effort. Depending on the time... More

Buckeye Hot Spring is awesome. It's a series of pools that are built each season along the creek/river that runs through. They get washed out with the rains and fluctuation of the river level and then visitors build them back up. As you sit in the pools, that are different temps, the creek runs past on the other side of... More

Easy to find but a steep and difficult hike down - but short. There is a nice small pool higher up near the parking lot. - let the kids climb down.

A short drive off highway 395 and then a short hike takes you to a lovely hotspings right in a river. Soak away the hiking and riding soreness form your week in the Sierras.

This hot spring is not the easiest place to find, but well worth the trip. It's several miles up a dirt and gravel road near Buckeye Camp Ground. There are about 4-5 pools at the edge of Buckeye Creek that people have walled off with rocks to catch the hot spring water that cascades over the rocks above the creek.... More
