We had a wonderful time visiting here a few days after a big winter storm. We had a 4WD vehicle + chains in the front tires, and the road wasn’t plowed but there were other tire tracks on the road. We were the only ones here for a while around mid-day, and then two other cars showed up as we were leaving. Definitely not crowded on a weekday in the winter! One pool was too hot, one was lukewarm, one was freezing, and one was just the right temperature (although shallow). I would definitely come here again in the off-season.
At Travertine Hot Spring you may choose to soak in the waters, the awesome Eastern Sierra scenery, the unique geological site or all three simultaneously. It's only a short distance between the trailhead and one of the most popular bathing sites made possible by the hot spring, but there are several other locations to be found by hiking around the area which is also the best way to explore the topography and understand the curious geology. Be sure to check the temperature of the water before plunging. At it's source the hot spring can be too hot to touch, though most of the pools range from hot-tub like temperatures to luke warm. Located just south of Bridgeport, and just a mile off the 395, follow Jack Sawyer road to the parking lot, trailhead and restrooms. Jack Sawyer road is a mostly dirt road but is easy to traverse. Easily accessible hot spring are rare, so expect this site to be crowded on weekends, and expect a diverse crowd of people. Clothing is optional here.
Great RV hot springs despite 1.1 mile drive on graded road. A little rough, but not bad. Drove
Needs better signage to direct visitors to the bathing pools… I couldn’t find anything to truly enjoy. I got really sunburned though.
Stopped at Travertine Hot Spring! You get a great view of the Eastern Sierra, the first few bathing sites are only a short walk from the parking lot. They don’t have anywhere to change into your bathing suit, they do have a restroom but it is very smelly and you’re better off changing in your car. We went on a Wednesday and basically had the hot springs to ourselves, if you keep walking down the trailhead you will find more. Clothing is optional here. We had an amazing time, definitely worth the trip!
