Sespe Hot Springs is a gem. I've been there 4 times since the
1980's. There are two ways to go. I'd recommend the shorter one,
although its a steeper hike (coming out).

The longer way is via the Lion Campground route off HWY 33
access from Ojai. Its relatively flat, but long (about a 10 mile hike
each way -20 mile round trip). We came this way the first time,
so I don't remember it much, but I recall it might be a good
mountain biking route in.

The preferred way is via a 5 mile one way /10 mile roundtrip from
Mutau Flat, which is accessed off Lockwood Valley Road. Its a
fantastic hike (or screamingly fast mountainbike ride which we
did twice) down the trail to the springs.

As you get to the bottom of the trail in the river gorge, walk a
short distance upstream and you'll see the source coming out of
the mountain. Usually there are a series of pools of various
depths. If you go during the week, you'll probably have the place
to yourself. We've never seeen more than 4 people there during
our visits.

THINGS TO REMEMBER: This is a very remote area.You will
need a Forest service permit.It is not an easy hike out.Take lots of
water and food, whatever you can carry. Make sure you have
good maps to get to the trailhead at Mutau Flat -the Los Padres
National Forest map is the best. Do not attempt during periods of
bad weather . Be very cognizant of fire danger
during the appropriate season.

I was trying to find my pics of Sespe, so I could post them, but
they are buried in the garage somewhere with other hot springs
photos (one day!!!!!). Other readers here at soak.net may have
additional information and observations..Let us all know how the trip goes if and when you go. Soak on!
