There are several pools here 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 or night. The hot spring is located river left just downstream from the Hobo Campground parking lot. A short, dirt trail leads from the downstream edge of the parking lot directly to the hot springs.
When the Lower Kern is flowing above 3000 CFS the lowest pools start to flood, and by 4000 CFS all the pools are flooded, making them cold and unsafe to enter.
