Description:

This is a trip I've wanted to do for a long time. It consists of a 28 km paddle up Pitt Lake, and then a 22 km bike ride up a flat logging road to what looks like a spectacular hot springs by the Pitt River. We will need to arrange canoes (MEC rental?) and everyone will need a bicycle. Apparently the logging road is in very good condition. It seems like a long day to get there or back (6-8 hour paddle, 2 hour bike ride), so doable within 2 days, more pleasant if done in 3 days.
