Lots of info. Please read carefully.
Deep Creek Hot Springs are natural hot springs located in the northern part of the Mojave Desert, a three-hour drive from Hollywood. This is a very popular place to get out in nature, au naturel!
Just like the recent day trip to Black’s Beach, some friends and I are road-tripping from Hollywood to Deep Creek for an incredible day of nudist fun in the sun. I wanted to create an event so we can caravan and have even more people come along.
We'll leave from Hollywood at 8:00am so we get to the Bowen Ranch, the parking area for the Deep Creek Hot Springs, around 11:00am.
~ Soaking in the Hot Springs
~ Music, and more!
~ Water, or whatever cold drinks you want (respect nature and safety of others, NO GLASS!)
~ Picnic Lunch and like fruit to snack on
~ Hiking boots or good tennis shoes for the hike
~ $5 exact change per person for ranch fee
~ Cash for donation for yoga and for gas if carpooling
~ Games, cards, guitar, bongo, etc.
~ Whatever else you bring to a day trip with friends, except Swimsuit NOT needed!
DRIVERS: Please post a comment here how many you have room to ride with you. Driving directions and parking instructions will be sent out the week of the outing. The last half mile of the drive is dirt road. Sedans and SUVs will make it fine, though lowrider sports cars would have trouble with the dips in the dirt road.
PASSENGERS: You should plan to make a contribution for gas of approx $10 per person.
Before you ask, DO I HAVE TO BE NAKED? Deep Creek Hot Springs is national park land and very clothing optional. Nudity is not required. But this is intended to be a naturist outing experience so that means YES, GET NAKED! At least at the hot springs. Give it a try! Please do not take a space in someone's car if you do not plan to give it a go, fully experiencing the lifestyle.
Although, if you are a driver who is willing to give others a ride, we need you whether you are getting naked or not.
We will hike back to the cars in time to leave just before sunset -- as that is the rules at Bowen Ranch -- around 8pm to be back in Los Angeles between 10:30-11:00pm.
And while at the hot springs...
Join us for nude yoga on the banks of the creek!
Blake, one of my favorite yogis, lead 20 of us in a great outdoor nude yoga class and is going to do the same on this outing!
There is no cost for this experience, though allow me to suggest for karma and kindness that it would be good to give Blake a donation for leading us.
This is open to everyone, and all levels of yoga experience. [Photo here is from our Black Beach nude yoga outing, and is three very talented yogis having a laugh. The actual yoga class is gentle and suitable for newbies and experts alike!]
PHYSICAL FITNESS: Deep Creek Hot Springs is a 3 mile hike of a 1000 foot elevation (each way) from the parking at Bowen Ranch. At the end of the hike, there is a cold creek to cross which, at this time of year, will be about two feet at it's deepest. Some parts of the hike are moderate to strenuous and you should be in average to good fitness to make the hike.
Weekends at Deep Creek Hot Springs can be very busy, especially in beautiful weather. We are planning to arrive by 11am to get parking and good location on the beach.
PLEASE POST A COMMENT if you are driving and able to offer someone a ride.
More will be revealed. ;-)
