With elevations from 3,100 to 3,700 feet, California Hot Springs is mostly above the fog line and  below the snow line. On occasion the visitor can expect to experience Valley Floor (fog) or High Sierra (snow) weather, although it usually does not last. Our winters are generally mild and our summers are sunny and beautiful. The privately owned resort and R.V. Park are abutted on three sides by the Giant Sequoia National Monument.  For those who like to hike, nature trails are available to the east in the national monument.
