A collection of very hot

A collection of very hot springs in a flat adjacent to the town of Fernley. Currently, the hot springs provide no bathing opportunities, but this may change. Patua Hot Springs consist of several sources of very hot water forming small, shallow pools. The water has been used for many purposes in the past, but currently they are left in a natural state. These springs are in a very beautiful setting near the Fernley Wildlife Management Area and are worth a visit. They are also in an area of extensive geothermal activity, from the Soda Lake area to Brady’s Hot Springs. -white rock condos
