Remington Hot Springs

Remington Hot Springs is the only free, public, and undeveloped hot springs in the Valley. There are 4 tubs here, each one a different temperature. The water is very sulfuric, which can tarnish metals. The tubs have been decorated, and the trail developed to make them more easily accessible. Still, the trail is about 1/2 mile long and moderately steep. It is not recommended for disabled or elderly persons. Those who are willing to make to trek are rewarded with relaxing hot water and the sound of the river just inches away. This is truly one of the most wonderful attractions of the Kern River Valley.

To get to the tubs, take Kern Canyon Rd (The Old Canyon Rd) from either Bodfish or Highway 178 (Borel). The turnout is about 10 miles down the road. Look for Hobo Campground, then continue about 1 mile down the road. The turnout is large but unmarked. It is a dirt area on the right side, usually one of the only turnouts along this road that is occupied. Park here and find the trail on the East side of the turnout.
