12 Mile (Bishop Creek) Hot Springs is one of Nevada's hidden gems that is oh, so relaxing. Nevada has more hot springs than any other state in the U.S., with more than 300 occurring naturally; most are found in Northern Nevada. With only a 2 mile hike, the whole family can get in on this one. The trail, which follows an old dirt road, is flat and quite scenic. How did it get its name? That's easy - it's roughly 12 miles north of Wells, Nevada along Bishop Creek. Getting to these hot springs is accessible year-round, but the 102F water temperature feels amazing in Winter. Worried about crowds? Don't be - most people haven't even heard of this place which makes it even more unique! Grab your swimsuit and snowshoes, and let's get soaking!

Diamond Fork Hot Springs is one of Utah's must-see places! Offering four pools ranging in hot temperatures, it's a great place to soak away your worries, take in nature, and relax. Hiking to Diamond Fork requires a 2 mile hike in Summer, and in Winter it's 6 miles one way. These hot springs are extremely popular so don't count on getting any along time. However, the hike in and soak is well worth it - you might even make some new friends depending which pool you sit in! Hiking to Diamond Fork Hot Springs in Winter does require more effort and planning, but in my opinion it's much more enjoyable in Winter and you get to see the canyon covered in snow. Pack your swimsuit, a thermos of hot tea or cocoa, and get ready to soak!
