Tucked away in the San Bernadino National Forest just outside of Apple Valley, these secluded clothing-optional hot springs are an oasis for the adventurous. Those who love to hike will appreciate the arduous trek to the springs. The most popular access point is via Bowen Ranch Road, a privately-owned dirt road where you’ll find parking for a small fee and the trail entrance. Be sure to pack lots of water for the hike, especially during the 100-plus degree summer months.
Requires a 2.5-mile hike from Bowen Ranch Road. $5 parking fee. Go early morning to avoid the desert heat.
