Keyhole hot springs is back open for business for the season!

But that doesn't mean that the gate will necessarily be open, so we should be prepared for a 30km bike ride each way with packs. Then the short couple km to the hot springs from the logging road. Oh, and there is also a waterfall a few km further on as well.

Hazards: Bears are historically a problem in this area as are landslides, be prepared to thwart death.

You need:

1.A bike with offroad tires is a must, so you don't get LOTS of flats. If you're dedicated but have a road bike and like 10 tubes you might convince me that you can come, but probably not. 

2. to bike and overnight camping gear and the ability to ride that bike for a couple hours

3. to recognize that bears may be in the area and the hazard that presents

4.To respect others on a clothing optional hike. This is an overnight trip and as long as everyone is decent to eachother we can have fun.
