Sloquet Hot Springs

Never had desire for being at the natural hot springs before, but after hearing about them,  I had to go check them out. The drive out there took roughly 4 and a half hours from Vancouver, half the time driving on the logging dirt roads. Never had the experience of driving so far away from the civilization before. Along the way it was interesting to find various little cemeteries (graves dating in the 1930s) and Native Indian towns (not found on maps). After arriving there, the place was a camping site with a trail that leads down the hill to the hot springs.

At the hot springs there’s various different natural pools that range in size and temperature. Beside it is a river with ice cold water, makes it a great way to cool off! The cloths are optional in this area, I guess it’s great for people who like to feel a bit more ‘natural’ than the rest of us who prefer our junk covered J.

Overall it was an interesting experience doing something different, but I don’t think it was worth such a long drive for it. Perhaps next time I’ll check out closer Hot Springs!

  1. What is the condition of the sloquet road. I have made the journey last 5yrs in a low clearance 2wd in may/June without much difficulty. The last 7km (after turn off from lillouet lake FSR) has been more challenging each year and after a very wet warm winter I am concerned. It will not stop spending next week in paradise, just like to know if I’ll have to hitch &/or hike the bit

    • The conditions are as any dirt roads you would expect… most of it wasn’t bad, a few areas had pot holes. But most vehicles would make it thru
