"Try the hot springs off..." Pacific Coast / PCH Tip by wilde

Pacific Coast / PCH, California: 19 reviews and 23 photos

Try the hot springs off Gaviota (About 50 miles north of Santa Barbara) if you are driving on the 1 or 101 from LA to San Francisco.

To get there, drive 101 North Freeway past Santa Barbara, past Gaviota, through the tunnel, then take the Highway 1 exit, and turn right (almost a U-turn) in the first intersection. 10 minute hike to Hot Springs, and if you really want a fantastic view you can continue the path upwards and hike to Gaviota Peak (About 3 hours up/down).
