Iva Bell Hot Springs
July 22, 9:00 am - July 26, 4:00 pm
I have a permit for 5 people for Iva Bell hot springs which is 13 miles south from Devils Postpile.
My plan is to meet at the Mammoth Lakes Welcome Center by 9am on Wednesday morning. From there we will drive to the Mammoth ski lodge where we pick up the shuttle bus into Devils Postpile and the trail head.
We’ll hike as far as we can, spend the night and hike the rest of the way Thursday morning. Thursday and Friday we’ll enjoy the hot springs.
After a quick soak Saturday morning we’ll start the homeward trek.
Hard sided bear resistant canisters are required by the forest service.
I have a couple of extra canisters if you need to rent one.
I will be camping nearby the night before and night after the trip. I know of a couple of free spots to camp in the area if you’d like to join me. There is a USFS campground behind the welcome center if you’d like.
Hot Springs are generally considered to be Clothing Optional. Being with or without clothes is not required, it is optional either way. There will be naked people in and around the springs and possibly on the trail.
If you have any questions or concerns please contact me.
There is a $20 donation to help cover the permit cost and the “dues” that Meetup charges me for use of their website.
