Deep creek hot springs are beautiful hot springs about an hour and a half north-east of campus. We'll leave campus around 10 AM, hike in to the hot springs and hang out for a few hours. When we're done there, we'll hike back out and head back to campus hopefully in time to catch dinner in the dining halls.

The hike is about 2 miles, and is not too difficult but it can be pretty steep in places. Don't forget to bring PLENTY of water, since it will be probably be pretty hot during the hike. Once we get to the hot springs, there is a river to cool off in as well as the hot springs, so it should be very pleasant.

 We will take as many people as we have space for, and people with cars have priority. PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOU HAVE A CAR and are willing to drive. I would love to take everyone who wants to go!

Let me know if you have any questions!
