Fording Mountain Sulphur Warm Springs

Fording Mountain (Sulphur) Warm Springs Professional Review and Guide

"A day hike to a thermal pond in the Elk River Valley. Swimwear advised if others present. One spring emerges from at least two outlets at the bottom of a large oval-shaped pond. Unfortunately, the temperature hovers around 76 degrees F/24.4 degrees C, but the pond looks like a classic swimming hole and even sports a diving board.

The outflow snakes across the meadow, and a second spring bubbles to the surface at 78 degrees F/25.5 degrees C a couple of bends downstream. Fording Mountain Warm Springs has a very high sulphur content and the associated smell of rotten eggs. The highly mineralized water attracts a variety of wildlife, and you can sometimes see moose, deer, and elk grazing nearby. The poplar-lined meadow, a pleasant spot to pitch a tent, doesn’t see many visitors."
