Hey peeps! We’re headed to the Sespe Hot Springs on a sweet, moderate backpacking extravaganza full of river crossing, splashing, and dips in the hot springs. We’ll leave Friday afternoon and head out to Los Padres National Forest to the Sespe River Trailhead and start in on the 10 mile hike. We’ll post up camp somewhere along the trail and then make our way to the hot springs and enjoy some killer stars. Sunday morning we’ll get up for a peaceful sunrise and hike back out. Meals will be delicious.
