Fales Hot Springs – California
Situated in Stanislaus National Forest, this hot springs is the remanence of a resort that has long been forgotten. Although there are not thrills at this place, it’s natural mineral waters still bring along the healing benefits as you relax and clear any stress away.
The source of the geothermal waters is scorching hot, but as it flows under the highway and through a pipe, the runoff cascades down into a rocked walled area where it is a much more manageable 95 degrees. Depending on the time of year it can fluctuate a few degrees. We wish you had better views of California’s landscape, but unfortunately you are stuck with a highway and the peaceful sounds of cars driving by.
