Southern California Naturist Association, Family-Friendly Nude Recreation
Welcome to the Southern California Naturist Association

SCNA is a clothing-optional travel club. We are a group of nudists and like-minded friends in the Greater Los Angeles area with no specific park or resort to call home. That frees us to explore the many opportunities for recreation and socializing that are available in our warm, beautiful region.

Within these pages you may encounter pictures of normal people just like you having fun camping, hiking, boating, and such, except they are doing so without the restriction of clothing. This website reflects our family-friendly orientation and illustrates the fun activities that we enjoy. It also has many articles and links that are excellent resources for expanding one’s understanding of nudism in America and world-wide.

If you are under age or otherwise not permitted to view frontal nudity in your home or community, please leave this site now. If you are looking for sexual content, or photos of children, you have definitely come to the wrong place!

Location:

Deep Creek Hot Springs, San Bernardino Mountains

Cost:

$5 per person for daytime parking. Pay at the Bowen Ranch entrance. If no one there to collect, place the exact fee in envelope with your vehicle license number.

Meet at the Bowen Ranch parking area between 10 and 10:30 a.m. If you miss us, hike down yourself and we will meet you at the hot springs.

The hike down to the trail is moderate if you are in fair shape. It is two miles long with a 970 foot drop in elevation. That means the slope is very uphill on the way back! It is not handicapped accessible.

Remember, there are no toilets, no water and no supplies available so be sure to bring everything you need. Don't forget your water, sunscreen lotion, hat, food, and comfortable hiking attire although you may hike nude both ways if you wish.

RSVP early to (818) 225-2273 so we can get a head count and arrange for car-pooling.
