Sloquet Creek (Sloquette Creek) Hot Springs -- Wilderness hotspring located near the north end of Harrison Lake. Several springs seep from the rocks about Sloquet Creek (Sloquette Creek) and flow along the ground before dropping over a short waterfall and forming a small pool which is too hot for bathing. Several other springs percolate from the ground, and volunteers have constructed small, natural-rock pools for bathing along the creek. Sloquet Creek Hot Springs located about 80 kilometres south of Mt. Currie, near the Lillooet River and just northwest of Harrison Lake.

Canada's Top 10 Hot Springs

(Canadian Press Published: Friday, November 03, 2006)

Canada has about 140 hot springs - all of them located in western mountain ranges - and in the latest issue of Canadian Geographic, geochemist Steve Grasby lists his top 10 must-sees.

Grasby works for the Geological Survey of Canada and has studied many of the country's hot springs, which range in temperature from 20 to 89 degrees Celsius.

Here are his favourites:

- Banff, Alta.: The original pool, discovered by Canadian Pacific Railway surveyors in 1885, is not open to the public, but visitors can relax in a pool higher up Sulphur Mountain.

- Liard, B.C.: "A must if you're making the long drive north" along the Alaska Highway. Located in Muncho Lake Provincial Park.

- Rabbitkettle, N.W.T.: Accessible by float plane. Visitors must be accompanied by a warden from Nahanni National Park Reserve.

- Hot Springs Cove, B.C.: Located in Maquinna Marine Provincial Park on Vancouver Island. Can be reached from Tofino by float plane, boat or kayak. "Water tumbles down a rock face from cracks to create a hot shower."

- Larsen, Yukon: A deep pool at the perfect temperature for bathing.

- Meager Creek, B.C.: Popular spring near Pemberton, developed in the Japanese onsen style.

- Broken Skull, N.W.T.: Best accessed by helicopter. "A fantastic place to swim and enjoy the mountain scenery."

- Tungsten, N.W.T.: Springs discharge from the base of the "stunning" Mackenzie Mountains.

- Sloquette, B.C.: A hot-spring waterfall and several pools.

- Fording Mountain, B.C.: Strictly for science buffs, this spring has extensive microbial mats, with high sulphur concentrations. "Great for studying but not for soaking."

MT Baker Hot Springs in USA

MT Baker Hot Springs

From Exit 230 on Interstate 5, near past Mount Vernon, go east on State Highway 20 (North Cascades Highway).
Just beyond the little town of Hamilton, but before reaching Concrete, turn left on the Baker Lake Road.
Follow that road to baker Lake Resort, about twenty miles. Turn Left on Forest Service Road No. 1144 (gravel and usually snow covered during the winter) which goes about three miles to a widened parking area. (It's by scenic outlook and you will come upon it by surprise.)
The trail, only about a quarter of a mile long, begins from the west side of the parking area (opposite the view point). The trail is unmarked, but take the left route from the parking lot. You will soon find yourself on some planked walkway, assuring you that the hot springs is a short distance away.
