• From the main parking area and restrooms on the rim of the canyon, this trail descends by way of a wide, paved path 100 feet down to the hot springs and boiling pools of the Hot Creek Geological Site. Swimming and bathing are not allowed here. Pay attention to fencing and signage and stay on walkways to avoid unstable ground. A well-used dirt trail continues up- and down-canyon along the south bank of Hot Creek, popular year-round with anglers and day hikers. The area is closed from sunset to sunrise.
