Sykes Hot Springs


Is This Your Business?

It's a long hike in, so plan on spending a night or two. Bring water, food, tent and warm sleeping bag. No campfires allowed, so bring a cook stove. Bring a little weed if you got it and share with others in the tubs to get in the right mood (, that is).
Crowd: Hikers
