Keyhole Falls / Pebble Creek Hot Springs (Hot Springs)

 

These are undeveloped wilderness hot springs. This site is difficult to access (and should only be attempted by experienced wilderness hikers), but is worth the effort. Getting here requires scrambling along the banks of the Lillooet River for approximately 1.5km. When the water in the river is high, the site may become inaccessible. There are several pools built into the sand; and if you travel a little further up the river you will come to another set of rock pool built into the the wall of the cliff by the river. The temperature of the water is at about 58°C (136°F).

Getting Here

Drive to Pemberton. Find and turn to Pemberton Meadows Rd. Follow Pemberton Meadows Rd north for about 22 km. Turn right and cross Lillooet River. Right after the bridge you should see a sign to “Lillooet River Forest Service Road”. Turn left and take the Lillooet River FSR north along the river. At about 7 km point you will see a junction with the Hurley FSR (the right fork). Keep left (take the left fork) and stay on Lillooet FSR. At 37 km point you will see an important-looking turnoff to the Meager Creek Rd on the left.  Continue straight past the turnoff. At about 42 km point you will see a shallow creek crossing the road. The stream should be passable, but BE CAREFUL AND CHECK BEFORE CROSSING. Continue straight and keep left. WATCH OUT FOR POSSIBLE ROAD WASHOUTS! At about 5 km past the turnoff to the Meager Creek Rd, just before the road leaves the river and starts to ascend steeply up the hill you will see a pull out. Park your car and hike the rest of the way.

Follow an old road and descent down the steep trail to the gravel bars of the Lillooet River. When you reach the river, go upstream, past a waterfall on the right. When you come to a rushing stream, check and make sure that the water levels are low before crossing it. Cross the stream ONLY IF THE WATER LEVES ARE LOW and USE EXTREME CAUTION, as it is DANGEROUS. Continue hiking upstream until the river makes a sharp turn to the right. Then scramble along the bank of the river past the corner. You will soon find the hot springs.
