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. currently offers topo maps from the entire United States. We plan to expand our topomap database in the future, however this map is not available at this time. Thank you for your understanding.
