This route is original and travels from the paradise town of Santa Barbara, CA, on the Pacific Ocean, north to forested Priest Falls, on the Canadian Border. The HST is made up of 4 parts. Each of these parts is its own epic adventure with an Official Guidebook containing detailed maps and written supportive data. The Hot Springs Trail Official Map Set provides you with a full set of those custom maps for the entire trail, but without the written trail support. The HST Map Set is intended as a companion set for traveling partners and should only be used as a stand alone by seasoned thru-hikers. This guidebook still addresses safety concerns, offers first-hand advice and tips, gives a complete breakdown of all resupply options, highlights water alerts, and includes current websites for planning. The Hot Springs Trail is friendly enough for most weekend backpackers or newcomers to thru-hiking and rewarding enough for all long-trail veterans, adventure explorers, and aspiring thru-soakers. The Hot Springs Trail was pioneered solely by its author and first successfully thru-soaked in 2014.
