Salt Springs is located in the northern California town of Montague. The area's hydrology is characterized by a unique combination of thermal springs, which are heated by geothermal activity, and cold springs, which originate from snowmelt and rainwater. These springs are a source of water for irrigation and drinking, with the largest surface flow coming from the Shasta River. The snowpack providers in the area include the Marble Mountains and the Klamath Mountains. Salt Springs has a rich history, with Native Americans using the area for ceremonial purposes for centuries. During the gold rush in the mid-1800s, the area became a popular destination for miners seeking relief from the hot climate. Today, the springs are used for both agricultural and recreational purposes, with many visitors coming to enjoy the natural beauty and therapeutic benefits of the warm water.
