These somewhat remote hot springs are incredibly nice. They are near Canal Flats in White Swan Provincial Park in BC. The road leading to these hot springs is a logging road… in decent condition, but gravel, and busy with logging/mining trucks. Well worth the drive though!
The top pool is very hot.. only stuck our toes in for a moment… water cascades into a middle pool, which is very nice and warm. A third, cooler pool is also present, however it was VERY shallow when we were there.
We met some nice folks who frequent the hot springs. Merissa talked to them about teaching, and we also discussed Rat Cliff hot springs, which were further up the road. After being cautioned that the road was in bad shape, we took an alternate road, but it was HORRIBLE. First of all, it was just the width of a car. Second, it was covered in very large pot holes. Lastly, there were a couple of signs that mentioned it was closed.
Against Merissa’s protests, we gave it a valiant effort… traveling a whopping 8km in 1.5 hours (out of approx 17km), before finding a spot to make a 8 point turn around and calling it quits. Maybe another time… (not if Merissa has any say in the matter!).
