"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.
