Description:

*Note: This trip involves intermediate bushwhacking and scrambling. It is NOT beginner friendly. 

I was thinking of ways to celebrate the end of a marvellous summer in BC and came to the conclusion that a trek out to the Pitt River Hot Springs would be a perfect way to spend the last few days before school.

 What to expect:

We'll drive up the Mamquam FSR on Friday evening and camp at the Watersprite Lake trailhead so that we can get an early start hiking on Saturday. On Saturday morning, we'll book it up to Watersprite Lake and then head off-trail into the Crawford drainage. There's a lake about 15 km from the trailhead that looks like a good place to set up camp.

On Sunday, we'll try to get to Pitt River Hot Springs (an additional 10 km mostly on logging roads) and soak for a bit before we head back towards the 15 km lake. We'll hike out on Monday and probably get back to the city quite late Monday just in time for classes on Tuesday.
