Best hot springs in the Central Coast

"Natural hot springs" just sound so wonderful, so inviting, right? Averaging temperatures of 100 degrees Fahrenheit, Sykes Hot Springs are located down an enjoyable yet somewhat lengthy hike down a trout-filled stream, culminating in a nature-made tub that looks like something right out of a myth. You half expect nymphs and gods to be soaking in the warm natural water, basking in the sunshine and cool forest breeze, but its made just for us mortals.
