Sloquet Creek Hot Springs Professional Review and Guide
"A day hike or mountain bike ride to remote creekside hot pools in the Coast Mountains. Swimwear advised if others present. The main spring, one of the hottest in British Columbia at 154 degrees F/68 degrees C, cascades into a source pool hot enough to cook eggs. Downstream, steamy water from other springs flows through a chain of shallow pools in the bedrock bank. Closest to the source, the largest pool registers nearly 113 degrees F/45 degrees C. The temperature drops to a toasty 105 degrees F/40.5 degrees C in the creekside pools. Cold water can be admitted for a cooler dip. The soaking pools are enclosed on one side by a tangle of undergrowth and overhanging trees and hemmed in on the other by the rushing torrent of Sloquet Creek. Shafts of sunlight filter through the treetops, and the stream ripples right past your nearly submerged nose. How close to heaven can you get?"
