A remote day hike or overnighter to geothermal wonders and a dicey dip in the Purcell Wilderness. Extremely skinny-dippable. The geothermal display at Dewar Creek is guaranteed to take your breath away. Both the steaming springs and the wild setting are visually stunning. But the access to this remote fairyland can be a different story, as is the problem of blending temperatures for a proper soak. Both the roads and the trail are subject to spring washouts, and visitors should check with the Park Service before setting out. The roads get progressively rougher even when intact; it’s also a bit of a navigational challenge to follow them. The path isn’t too difficult in dry weather but becomes a quagmire when damp.
