Soak at Buckeye Hot Springs
Yosemite › Buckeye Hot Springs
Added by Jake Young
Relax in natural and scenic hot springs along Buckeye Creek, in the Eastern Sierra Nevadas. A popular and highly rated spot.
From the parking lot, walk down the short but steep incline to the springs (200m). There is also a campsite within 0.25 miles.

This is just a short drive off of the 395 and a great little stop. The hot springs are pretty unique and tucked alongside a mountain river. The rocks that form the hot springs can be rearranged to make multiple pools with different temperatures. We had a 4Runner so no problems getting there, road is pretty well graded.
Pretty Cool But busy
My boyfriend and I went here before Valentine's Day and there were a ton of people, probably around 15. Weird since it's quite a drive off-road and a bit of a hike too. Other than that, the hot spring was large and really warm, luckily it was right off of a river so the cold water circulated in. It's a fun day trip!

After entering the park, keep driving the loop until you get onto Northside Drive, and then park once you are right below El Capitan (the 3,000ft granite monolith that is very hard to miss).
