Sloquet Hot Springs (Hot Springs)

 

These are undeveloped wilderness hot springs. There are many different streams falling from a 10 meter cliff into several gravel-bottom pools made out of stones. These waterfalls are extremely hot, 68°C (154°F), but the water cools gradually as it flows from one pool into another. The first pool that is formed by the stream is also very hot, but you will have an enjoyable relaxing soak in the other pools. Although quite shallow (less than a meter deep), these pools provide a good selection of water temperatures to choose from, and the icy-cold waters of the Sloquet River make an excellent plunge “pool”. Due to the popularity of these springs, a fee based forestry campground was established in the area.

Getting Here

There are two ways to reach this site: a shorter route is by a very rough road from the Fraser Valley (a 4x4 capable vehicle is required), and a longer but the most popular route by a good gravel road from Pemberton (passable by most vehicles).

From Pemberton

take Highway 99 from Pemberton to Mount Currie. After you cross the river with Lillooet Lake on your right hand side, watch for a junction (about 10 km from Mount Curie). Turn right to In-Shuck-Ch FSR (the left fork is Duffy Lake Rd). Continue driving along the Lillooet Lake for about 31 km. You will come to another junction – stay left and the road becomes Pemberton Douglas FSR (the road to the right crosses the Lillooet Lake). Continue driving past Skookumchuck village and cross the Gowan Creek. In another 18.5 km you will come to a junction – stay right. In another 4 km you will cross the Lillooet River and come to a junction with the Lillooet West FSR. Take the Lillooet West FSR and drive for another 4 km south. When crossing the Fire Creek watch for Sloquet FSR. If you cross the Sloquet Creek itself, you’ve gone too far. Turn right at Sloquet FSR and drive west/north-west. Follow this Sloquet FSR past kilometer 9. When the road goes up a sharp incline, but before 10 km mark you will see an old logging road to the left. Take this road until you see a clearing. There is a trail that will take you down to the creek and the hot springs.

From Fraser Valley (4x4 capable vehicles only)

Take Highway 7 east towards Harrison Mills. Just before reaching Harrison Mills turn to left onto the Morris Valley Rd (to Hemlock Valley ski area). Keep right at Hemlock Valley turnoff and drive towards Harrison West FSR. Follow Harrison West FSR for about 29 km to a junction. Stay right on the main road and drive for another 26 km. Cross the Bremmer Creek. Continue driving on the main road. You will cross over the Tretheway Creek, drive past Tipella village and over the Tipella Creek. The road now becomes Lilooet West FSR.  Continue to the bridge over the Sloquet Creek. Turn left at Sloquet FSR and drive west/north-west. Follow this Sloquet FSR past kilometer 9. When the road goes up a sharp incline, but before 10 km mark you will see an old logging road to the left. Take this road until you see a clearing. There is a trail that will take you down to the creek and the hot springs.

Awesome Hot Springs

Submitted by Guest on October 2, 2012

The gravel road is pretty intense. Drivable with a small Mazda 3 with sports wheels. I've done this road twice. I don't think I'll take my car there again. A million potholes. And the last hill to the Sloquet campsite nearly killed it. Big rocks on low ride...the noise was painful. But doable ! But once at the campsite area... it's fantastic. The springs, so relaxing. So natural. Bring a bag of tea light candles to top up the experience at night !

I will go again and take a ride with friends who have higher car. And deflate the pressure in your tires !
