Northern California Hot SpringsNorthern California spans the state’s northernmost 48 counties and contains redwood forests, along with the Sierra Nevada, Yosemite Valley and part of Lake Tahoe and Mount Shasta. For navigational ease, we have drawn a line straight across at San Fransisco to divide the regions.
With the wide expanse of mountain ranges and elevation variances, northern California can have diverse weather patterns. Snow and wet conditions are not uncommon. There are several seasonally accessible hot springs as it is always a good idea to know the area you are headed into before going. We denote if the spring has seasonal restrictions to help guide you.
Hot springs in northern California offer unique geothermal pool experiences from the developed Orr Hot Springs Resort near Ukiah to the more rustic Travertine Hot Springs in the Humboldt Toiyabe National Forest.
