The hotsprings are very hard to find because there are no signs for any of the logging roads. Also the last portion on Clear Creek Road is more like 10km or 15km not 6km. From Harrison lake the trip was 4 hours. Our new 4x4 truck couldn't quite make it all the way to the springs because of a snow avalanche so we hitched a ride on some atvs to go the rest of the way. I am a big fan of adventures like this and that's why I gave the trail 5 stars. The hotsprings were wonderful and really really hot! The difficulty of the road was definitly not "easy" as the guide implied. Tips for future travellers: Clear Creek road is right beside the huge sand dunes. Bring lots of food because it is a long trip. The last portion of the road may be washed away due to weather conditions so you may have to walk, but don't give up, It is all worth it :)
