Because it is easily accessed from Highway 395, Travertine Hot Springs is one of the Eastern Sierra’s most popular geothermal locations. Stunning Sierra views and relaxing waters reward visitors who take the short dirt road detour. Pool floors are lined with rich gray travertine mud that is touted for its restorative properties.

A natural spring sends hot water bubbling to the surface, where it is diverted into small pools of varying temperatures. An ADA-accessible improved cement tub is closest to the parking area and suitable for larger groups of four to eight people. Continue down the pathway behind the restrooms to discover three smaller natural pools that each fit up to three people.

The springs can become quite crowded when cooler temperatures prevail, so be prepared to share a tub. If you are traveling with children or are particularly modest, it should be noted that many visitors enjoy Travertine in the nude.

Although close to the town of Bridgeport, the road to Travertine is not well marked. The gravel road diverges several times before the destination, so have a look at the accompanying directions to confirm your route. 

The road is not maintained in winter, and heavy snowfall cuts off access to the springs.
