Relax in this little piece of paradise overlooking the Pitt River as it cuts through a gorge. It is truly a secluded and mystical place. Ideal for those looking for adventure.
The trip can be a little slow, but it just adds to the enjoyment of the destination. Perhaps taking the route less traveled is the right option.
The hot springs are positioned next to the scenic and lively Pitt River, as the name suggests. To get there, take Lougheed Highway towards Pitt Meadows and finally Pitt Lake. Then it’s a boat ride to the north end pier, followed by about 20 kilometers of biking on a flat logging path.
It’s a 5-minute trek with a steep rope climb down to the hot springs from there. When you arrive, you’ll be able to enjoy the natural benefits of hot springs in one of the most breathtaking settings our province has to offer.
Switch off Old Dewdney Trunk Road in Pitt Meadows and travel north on Rannie Road before entering Grand Narrows Regional Park. You can launch your canoe or kayak here, or you can hire one from one of the Canoe Rentals down at the docks (check ahead to make sure they are open the day and times you are going). Overnight parking is $5.00 a night and is available throughout the day.
There are two options for going to the end of Pitt Lake: canoeing or taking a boat ride. The journey is unquestionably worthwhile! If you want to canoe or kayak, you should expect it to be a little more complex than anticipated.
The paddle lasts 6-8 hours and involves a 28-kilometer hike/bike trip, which is much less popular than taking a boat ride.
To begin with, fitting your overnight gear and two bikes into the canoe is a tough job. While in the reservoir, you might not know about Pitt Lake that you Have to paddle along the far right side of the lake for the first 8 kilometers. The lake is naturally very shallow.
Another issue with canoeing is getting through all of the waves created by the motorboats on the lake. The paddle to the lake’s end is absolutely breathtaking.
If you prefer to have a Boat-Ride, you’ll need to find a guy who owns a boat or someone who can taxi you over. Some rides cost about $400 for up to six passengers.
The lake’s southern end has an active logging processing station, so it’s easy to figure out where to go. The road leads directly to the logging facility, where there is a heavily used pier. There is always staff at the logging plant, people fishing on the dock, and other people.
Take out your bike and begin riding after you’ve arrived at the port. You can leave your canoe on the dock overnight if you lock it up.
The road is in excellent shape for a logging road and is relatively flat. The bike could take a typical rider about 2.5 hours to get there and 2 hours to get back. Just in the latter half of the ride can you find tiny hills. There are small signs indicating how far you’ve traveled, and just after passing the 21km milestone, the road will turn left, down a slope, and cross the Pitt River. You’ve landed as you reach the bridge.
If you plan on sleeping overnight, you can conveniently set up your tent on the side of the road here. It would be best if you remembered to carry a lock on your bicycles; it’s a long walk to file a report.
It’s just a 5-minute hike down to the Springs. The trailhead is located directly next to the bridge, on the right (or north) side. There is a big sign a little higher up in the tree, as a liability disclaimer.
At the end of the hike, the final descent to the Hot Spring requires rappelling down a 30′ cliff’s vertical rock face, a bad fall there is likely fatal, there is a thick rope anchored to a three there for this purpose, but make sure you understand that repelling down a vertical cliff is not something everybody can do.
Finally, there is no cellular phone network there, so you are on your own if you happen to have an emergency while out there unless you carry GPS satellite communications with you. The best is to leave a well-detailed trip plan with family or friends who can call emergency rescue services if you fail to return home when you said that you would.

I got to visit a really special spot in BC this weekend, but it wasnt easy getting there!
30 km canoeing, and 22 km biking each way is a tall order for one weekend! But in between the outrageously long travel times, we got to spend a whole day in the most beatiful hotsprings on the edge of a glacial river.
This was one of the most challenging trips I've done in awhile, and it really tested my mental and physical stamina, but it made me appreciate being there that much more.
Thank you Mischa for being such a great adventure buddy! ♡
Relaxing on this little piece of paradise overlooking the Pitt River.

Much like their name says, the hot springs sit near to the gorgeous and bustling Pitt River. You must go along Lougheed Highway towards Pitt Meadows and eventually Pitt Lake to get there.
After that, it's a 45-minute boat ride to the north end dock, then little over 20 kilometres of flat logging road biking, ebikes highly recommended.
It's a 5-minute climb from there to the hot springs, with a steep rope down. You'll be able to enjoy the natural benefits of hot springs in one of the most gorgeous locations our province has to offer once you arrive.
Relax in this small slice of heaven, which views out over the Pitt River as it cuts through a gorge. It is a genuinely remote and magical location that is ideal for people seeking adventure.
The journey may be a little long, but it just adds to the enjoyment of the destination. The route less travelled is sometimes the finest road to take.

Need that unthought-of Surprise date day for a special someone? #pittriverhotsprings is the win win.
Who wouldn't love this To get to this location, you'll need a helicopter Or a boat, a bike, a good sense of direction, and a lot of time. While Pitt Lake is close to Vancouver, it's an understatement to say these hot springs are just a hop, skip, and a jump away... However, once you arrive, they will most likely all be yours..
Corbold Creek is one of the major remaining spawning areas for Sockeye salmon in the Upper Pitt River watershed. PSF is assisting with partial funding of the Kw’atset te sthe’qi - Corbold Creek South Floodplain Restoration project that is working to increase the amount of flood protected fish habitat for Sockeye salmon and other aquatic species in the Upper Pitt River watershed.
The restoration of the Corbold Creek south floodplain will provide secure habitat for Upper Pitt River Sockeye and an opportunity to bring others into the watershed to view this important species in an accessible and learning rich environment. The name of the project “Kw'aatset te sthe'qi” from the Lower Fraser Salish Halkomelem dialect, means "Look at the Sockeye Salmon" a hope that future generations will see these special fish returning in abundance, there, forever.
This multi-year project is an indigenous-led collaborative effort of the Lower Fraser Fisheries Alliance, Katzie First Nation and Fisheries and Oceans Canada - with support from WWF, Healthy Watersheds BC, the Pitt River Lodge, as well as outside technical experts.
Photos are of the Upper Pitt River, Corbold Creek, Alvin Pattison Channel and Boise Creek area.
Pitt River Hot Springs is a magical place It's Quite a trek with a steep rope climb down to the hot springs at the end but No reception, No time limits, The best part about this location is how remote and relaxing it is in this little piece of paradise overlooking the Pitt River as it cuts through a gorge.

Paddeled and biked to #pittriverhotsprings road was fine, altogether 60km paddle and 44km cycle. Pool was far from being washed out. Definitely encountered some rain, but a little discomfort is healthy.
Was not expecting the mudflats to be so shallow tho. Thought we could sneak through a channel but ended up pulling the canoe a couple kms.

Pitt River Hot Springs, Soakers Report: by tasha.ks2
After paddling for hours and arriving at the wharf, exhausted, we ran into a group of hunters. They gave us a drink and told us we were crazy for completing that paddle. They warned us to camp at the wharf for the night and NOT to attempt to bike down the forest road in the dark, due to bears and cougars!
We pressed on anyways, passing many surprised hunters as we lost the remaining light from the sky. We stopped for cookies in a small logging camp and began to wonder if we were insane for attempting this trek. I rang my bike bell periodically, pretending it could keep us safe from wildlife encounters 😅
We biked down the bumpy road, in the dark. We realized the last leg was mostly uphill, and briefly needed to collapse in the dirt
#pittriverhotsprings This is a real place. And you can be there. In the middle of nowhere, surrounded by warmth and beauty. Relax and unwind, you are in hot spring time zone, paradise. But you definitely have to work for it!
