A midnight soak in natural, undeveloped hot springs … just within a stone’s throw of the waves of the Pacific Ocean. Sounds nice, doesn’t it? Well it is nice. But it isn’t easy. A visit to Steep Ravine Hot Springs demands keen navigation and expert timing.
Hidden in a cove near the Steep Ravine Cabins in Mount Tamalpais State Park, the springs are only accessible during extreme negative tides, and even then only for a few hours.
