Deer River Hot Springs (Hot Springs)


These undeveloped wilderness hot springs are located on the west side of the Deer Creek, northeast of Liard Hotsprings Provincial Park. Access to these springs is very difficult and very few people have actually visited them. Only experienced hikers should attempt to get there. The site has a magnificent large turquoise-blue pool (more like a small lake) that is about 30 meters diameter and 6 meters deep. The water in the pool is clear and warm with the temperature of about 32°C (91°F). There area has a number of other vents from which the water emerges and flows in a series of streams and waterfalls into the Deer River. The site has a large population of wildlife, including bears and moose.
