can't actually rate the trail - we tried to drive in on Nov 11 but had to turn back. the road is bumpy and narrow, and when covered in snow, quite treacherous. we were in a RAV4. there were tire tracks ahead of us who didn't turn back, but I think it was a truck.

A beautiful hike! Very little incline. Currently it’s very icy. I do want to warn anyone going that there is absolutely no service right when you get off the 93 highway so have ur routes loaded. It’s an hour drive after the highway. We got the car stuck at one point so park the car where the hike says to start. It’s 5.6kms to the hot springs. The majority of it is on a gravel road, but the last .8kms is on a narrow path along the mountain. Water is very warm! What a treat it is to spend some time there!

HikingGreat!

Competed Oct 11, 2020 It's Lussier Hot Springs that is closed. Ram Creek is open and accessible. We had a newer SUV with off-road features but we were unable to drive too far in. We got about 1.5km in from the trailhead then pulled off to the side when we reached a huge pothole. We hiked the remaining 4km in just under an hour; very easy hike with almost no incline. Had the springs to ourselves for an hour and then joined by two other groups (it was Thanksgiving Sunday). A secluded natural beauty! Well worth the long drive in.

Bumpy ride, got within 650meters of the springs. Need a truck, and not a new one. May get some scratches...lol Was awesome to see and sit in the warm water.

The road was a bit too rough for our little car, so we "hiked" in (about 5 or 6km) Easy hike, wore slides. Had the pools to ourselves! Nice alternative since all the other hot springs in the area are closed.

HikingGreat!

You can drive to within 650 meters of the springs with a high clearance vehicle. 4WD should not be required. There is a rough section around the midpoint of the road, but it improves after that. It is a lovely spot and the temperature of the water just right for laying around as long as you want.

Drove up Ram Creek Road to mile 9 marker - stop just beyond the rock painted like a bear. Hike into the reserve - there is a small sign on the trees for the reserve site. Follow the path and stay to the left the entire way - will have to cross a small stream. Hike is about 2km. Good for dogs. Warm pools.

The hot springs are awesome. The trail is actually a washed out fire road with a river crossing until you reach the edge of the reserve. From there it's just a short hike to the waterfalls and the upper hot spring pool. If you're worried about getting your car stuck you'll want to pull over where we started. There are some sketchy parts of the road that were fairly washed out with no spot to turn around right after this.

From highway to hotsprings all in is less than 2 hours. The last 5 Km are a little tricky but not to bad, some bigger rocks and little river crossing and one part is a little washed out. But defantly possible with a stock tacoma, and actually super fun. Hotsprings are just warm not Hot but still pretty location.

My gf and I visited on a Sunday afternoon during our quest to find secluded, natural hot springs and were a bit disappointed. To get to the start of the “trail”, we took a 50min drive on gravel down Whiteswan Lake Forest SR, drove past Lussier hot springs, made a right on Lussier River Forest SR S, took a right on White Ram Forest SR, and continued until we were uncomfortable with driving on the road (the reason I write “trail” in quotations is the first 2.5miles of the route is actually White Ram Forest Service Road). Lifted vehicles with 4WD, high ground clearance, and a driver with high risk tolerance can drive the entire length of the road to the start of the actual trail. We were passed by a couple of vehicles while walking on the road and felt a little silly that we had given up prematurely on the drive. The actual hike to the warm springs took about 10min (roughly 0.2miles) and was easy. In total we saw 28people and a couple of dogs: 20people walking to/from the warm springs and 8ppl at the springs when we arrived. Unfortunately, our secret hot springs are no longer a secret. Pro tip: wear water shoes at the springs. The water is murky/slimy and there was broken glass along the edge of one of the pools. 2nd Pro tip: one of the locals at the warm springs informed us that there is a shorter drive/hike option from Premier Lake down Sheep Creek Rd.

First to Review

the hot spring pools are a perfect hidden gem. most of the hike is on a service road. once you get on the trail it's only 9 minutes to the pools. once you see a yellow DANGER sign, climb the little hill behind it and enjoy the privacy the pools provide. I'm glad not many people know about this spot. I had the place all to myself for as long as I wanted.
