Keyhole Hot Springs

“Keyhole Hot Springs(sometimes called Pebble Creek Hot Springs) is located 100 kilometres from Whistler(Village Gate Blvd). Though most of the 100k is on logging roads, it is drivable by most cars without any trouble. The massive Innergex hydroelectric project is well underway in the area, turning a once quiet wilderness into a war-zone. On the plus side, the old logging roads near Keyhole Hot Springs are now well maintained and smooth. 2014 saw the permanent closing of the old hot springs trail and a new trail built. The Lillooet River Trail, with its own trailhead parking, small sign and permanent outhouse, now marks the start of the route to Keyhole Hot Springs. The new trail is 2 kilometres long and moderately challenging as it skirts the rugged terrains along the Upper Lillooet River. There are at least two amazing areas along the trail perfect for camping along the river.”

Tavi had to walk out into a few large puddles formed on the road by the heavy rain to test if they were shallow enough to drive through.

The trail had us walk under a large waterfall by hugging the cliff side wall.

Too wet to start a fire and roast marshmallows?

There were 4 different pools the size of small hot tubs that varied in temperature from warm to so hot we couldn’t even enter.

With the ice cold river right next to the springs you could jump in and cool down any time you liked.

    Hey Patrick. Seen this post on Reddit. I’m in the same list http://www.irishwaterdogs.com/camping-and-hiking-in-the-umpqua-national-forest-oregon/
    Really beautiful pics!… WTG buddy.
    It sounds like there is pretty easy access here for somewhere that looks so incredibly wild. How long did you guys go camping for?

    As always, superb photos. Looks cold though! Very rare to see a lady out camping, in the RAIN, and STILL SMILING. I love it!

    The two waterfall photos are just incredible, especially with the gold pop of color from the trees. Bravo!

    Way Cool! Love the shots of cooling off. And are those pocket rockets great, or what? Keep going!

    Great images and it seems to be a great trip,too, although weather seesm to be a little rough. Did you use a raincover to protect your gear ?
    Thanks and go on with the good work !

    Super bad to drive a little car fast through puddles like that. Water in your air intake will fuck your car up bad.
