These hot springs can be found by staying on the Upper Lillooet River Forest Service Road, past the old turnoff to Meager Creek Hot Springs.

This area was a test site for geothermal exploration tests; during this time too small Springs were found a short distance to meager Creek Hot Springs. Because of their size and location, there are no real soaking abilities or needs due to Meager being so close if you walk up the gravel past Meager Hot Springs toward the creek called Hot Spring Creek that flows into Meager. Keep going for a couple of hundred meters. You’ll find hot water by the creek about half a kilometer past meager hot springs. There are also a couple more vents, a few hundred meters more further Upstream. Apparently, These are the “actual” Placid Hot Springs.
