About Miracle Hot Springs

Also known as Hobo hot springs, this is the first of three hot springs on the Lower Kern. The other two are Remington and Delonegha.

Miracle Hot springs has several pools paved with river rock that are supplied with hot water from a natural hot spring. The pools are right next to the river, providing a fantastic setting for soaking day. The hot spring is located river left just downstream from the Miracle access parking lot. A short, dirt trail leads from the downstream edge of the parking lot directly to the hot springs. This area is open from sunrise to sunset.

Recently, the hot springs have suffered from their popularity with overcrowding, trash, graffiti, reports of fights, drug use, and intoxication. We no longer recommend stopping at them and hope a solution is found so they can return to their former “miracle” setting.
