A Guide To Visiting Mammoth Hot Creek Geological Site
Today we’re visiting the Mammoth Hot Creek Geological Site, where steaming water and geysers occur here in California.
Year round this is a beautiful spot to visit. Popular activities include hiking, picnicking...and cross country skiing in the winter cross.
Look up “Brees Lookout Spot” for Google map directions to the most popular spot for photographers.
The water in this hot creek area is far to hot to swim in. It is much hotter than the Mammoth Hot Springs.
Once you reach the trailhead you can enjoy walking safely down the 1/4 mile marked path for up-close hot creek views.
This area is an important fault activity indicator for Mammoth and the whole Eastern Sierras.
If you’re heading up Hwy 395 to Mammoth, Yosemite or Tahoe, this is a great stop that can be enjoyed in under 1 hour.
Walk the entire path and then visit the hot creek wild trout area, a popular fishing spot with the locals.
Consider visiting on a cold morning to see large amounts of steam rising up from the creek below.
