Fish Creek is the best hot springs in California, and there are several ways to hike in. Our first party starts at
Lake Edison, crosses Silver Creek, and and drops down into Fish Valley
from the West. After crossing Sharktooth Creek, and finding not a soul
in sight, they quickly set up camp and head to the hot springs to soak
their tired feet. A day later, our second party arrives cross country by way of Mammoth Pass.
Both parties unite the next day and hike up Sharktooth Creek to Lost Keys Lakes. Outstanding views of the Silver Divide
are had from an unamed peak above the lakes. The following day,
the first crew head out the way they came in, but ditch the trail halfway back and follow Silver Creek up to it's source.
They set up camp at 10,000 ft. with an outstanding view of the Cock's Comb. The next day they hike all day on
snow and discover Arch Rock. The second crew depart the hot springs a day later and go 13 miles out in one day to Reds Meadow
near Mammoth Mountain.
Approximate running time: 25 minutes
