Soaking in the natural hot spring water of Grover Hot Springs State Park is one of the sublime delights of the Byway. From immense mountain peaks and old lava flows covering hundreds of square miles in the east to the glacially-carved valley and natural hot springs, Grover Hot Springs is a testament to the ancient and powerful geologic forces that shaped the landscape that one sees today. The Park’s eight natural hot springs are a result of surface water percolating through cracks in the earth’s crust until it reaches hot rock thousands of feet below, then bubbles back up to the surface, dissolving and absorbing minerals along its way. The water is a scalding 148 degrees when it reaches the ground surface; however the Park regulates hot pool inflow to maintain a comfortable soaking temperature between 102 and 104 degrees. The water at Grover Hot Springs State Park contains little sulfur, and does not have that “rotten egg” smell so common in other natural hot springs.
Year Purchased: 1978
About the owner: I was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. When I was a child my parents took me camping for the summer in the San Gabriel Mountains at Chrystal Lake. This was a great adventure for me and it shaped my whole life. I went to the School of Forestry at U. C. Berkley and graduated with a degree in Forestry. This eventually led me to northern California where I now live. A longing for the forests led me to Markleeville and the Chalet on Pinion Road.
Why the Owner Chose Markleeville, CA, USA:
Markleeville is unique as it is away from the cities and the hustle of major resort areas. Alpine county, were Markleeville is located, has the smallest population of any county in California. Seventy-five percent of it is owned and managed by the federal government and is there for you to enjoy.
The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
Grover Hot Springs State Park is Less then a 15 minute drive from the Chalet. There is a hot pool and a cold pool where you may spend as much time as you wish. Markleeville and Alpine county are open to the public for all manor of out door recreation, camping, hiking fishing, hunting, and mountain biking are only some of the outdoor activities you may enjoy
