Spencer Hot Springs is fairly well-known despite its relatively remote location. Close to Austin, this area has some of the best bathing opportunities in the area. The several pools tend to keep a consistent temperature of around 105-110 degrees F.
Spencer Hot Springs is about 20 miles east of Austin on U.S. 50 and NV 376. To reach Spencer Hot Springs, travel about 14 miles east of Austin on U.S. 50 to the point where it intersects with State Route 376 (the road to Tonopah). Turn south on 376, then after about a tenth of a mile, take an immediate left onto a dirt road (marked by an historical marker for Toquima Cave). Travel six miles on the dirt road, then turn left onto another dirt road and head toward a small rise. Spencer Hot Springs is located on the eastside of the mound.
