Dewar Creek Hot Springs (Hot Springs)


These beautiful undeveloped hot springs are located deep in the Purcell Wilderness. Although they are very difficult to access, it is worth the effort. Visitors will be rewarded with breathtaking scenery, privacy, and, of course, hot mineral waters of the springs. The water at this site emerges from multiple sources. The area very interesting and is worth exploring. The water in the springs is clear, has slight sulfur odor, and is very hot (80°C / 176°F). The main soaking pools are located along the Dewar Creek, but there are a lot of smaller pools with various water temperatures in the area.
