Description:

 THIS TRIP HAS A LIMITED NUMBER OF SPOTS - see Message Board Thread for details.

My birthday is this month and to celebrate, I want to take a trip to the Meager Hot Springs! The hot springs are a fantastic weekend getaway and the perfect place for an outdoor party. Plus the trail to them isn’t too awful. BYOB and a delicious dessert to share!!

This trip is beginner friendly, so long as you're comfortable with an overnight pack.

Clarification: This trip is for those with  overnight hiking experience. This trip will not be lead as an introduction to overnight hiking.  "Beginner friendly" was the wrong term to use; I was thinking of beginner as in new to VOC but not to hiking. I apologize for the confusion. To correct the previous statement: participants must be self sufficient hikers with an overnight pack as parts of the trail are rough.

For maximum hot spring enjoyment, parties will ideally arrive and camp at the trailhead Friday evening in hopes to hike in reasonably early Saturday morning —  all the more time for enjoying in the springs! Sunday we’ll pack up and head out … whenever.

IMPORTANT: Because of the nature of this trip, some participants will likely choose to enjoy the hot springs in the nude. This is certainly NOT mandatory (there is a changing room near the springs for those so inclined), but if that possibility makes you uncomfortable, this might not be the trip for you. That being, please note:

HARASSMENT OF ANY KIND WILL NOT BE TOLERATED. PERIOD.  Likewise participants are reminded to ask permission of subjects, specifically nude subjects, before taking and publishing photographs of them. Respect your fellow hiker, their boundaries, and their privacy. I’m stating this explicitly to ensure that everyone involved can have a fun, supportive and safe environment in which to enjoy the hot springs.

In all honesty the atmposphere won't be much diffenrent than that of Wreck Beach, so please don't think that the Hot Springs are a bad place. I just want everyone to be on the same page for what is and isn't acceptable so that everyone can have a good time. 

If you have any questions or concerns about this trip, please feel free to talk to me [email protected] :)

 

LET'S PARTY!!!!! :D
