The Deep Creek Hot Springs are located in the Deep Creek drainage, outside the city of Apple Valley.  The easiest access is through the Bowen Ranch Road, which accesses the site through private land (a fee is charged). The trail descends steeply for 2 1/2 miles to the springs. An alternative route is to hike the Pacific Crest Trail east from Arrowhead Lake Road, roughly a six mile hike.

Bowen Ranch is private land.  There are alternate routes around the ranch on Bureau of Land Management dirt roads.  For directions on the BLM designated routes, contact:
