A day hike or mountain bike ride to hot tubs on the east side of Harrison Lake. Swimwear is anyone’s guess. Clear Creek has two principal soaking tubs. One, made of tongue-and-groove cedar boards, is 6 ft/1.8 m in diameter with a wraparound cedar bench. Beside it sits a recessed wood and plastic soaking box big enough for half a dozen cozy bodies to enjoy. Decks surround the pools, and pipes carry water from the nearby springs. The hottest source (109 degrees F/43 degrees C) feeds the round tub, while the adjacent soaking box runs several degrees cooler. Take your pick! Nearby, there’s a swimming pool built of cedar logs by a woman prospector back when the road was first opened. The pool wastes away collecting silt and algae. Although she still has mining claims, the land is publicly owned. You’d expect this far-flung spot to be one of the quieter soaking grounds in the province, but unfortunately that isn’t the case. Remote as it may be, Clear Creek is still the closest wild dip to the metropolitan Vancouve
