Can you help me find natural hot springs between Tahoe and San Francisco?

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone. My husband and I love natural hot springs. Last summer in British Columbia we went to some magnificent ones. I know California has many but I can't seem to find them in my initial research. I am coming across mostly places that offer spa services where there is water from springs.

We are going to be heading to San Francisco for a couple of nights from a week in Lake Tahoe and would love to spend the 1st night somewhere to enjoy hot springs, pools. I am not looking for mostly a spa that we would pay for spa services. What I really would love to discover is inatural springs we can either do a short hike into that is not developed or somewhere with various mineral fed hot pools, regular pools, etc.

Does this exist? We don't want to go more than 1-2 hours off track en route but if I get a suggestion for something I get excited about we likely will go out of our way to do.
