Post Re: Club Run Oct 7th
I will be attending.

Of the two hot springs past the north end of Harrison Lake - Sloquet and Skookumchuck (AKA St Agnes Wells or T'sek) - Skookumchuck are the nicer springs. Cleaner, better taken care of etc. This site is managed by the local 1st Nations band. It is a pay per use site. It is located approximately 40 km's past the north end of Harrison Lk., on the In-SHUCK-Ch FSR, on the east bank of the Lillooet river. It is high grade FSR all the way there.

There are primitive change rooms on site, and about 10 hot tubs.

If we depart at 9:00 am, we will arrive before noon. Spend 4-5 hrs there and then depart few hours before dark, or leave earlier if you like.

*****Update Oct 3, 8:00PM*****

Some suggestions, what to bring etc.
Bathing suit and towel (obviously)
bathrobe and flip flops (handy for walking in between the change rooms and the tubs, especially if its chilly)
picnic lunch
cash money for the entrance fee
don't bring your dog, pets must remain in the vehicle. I learned this the hard way.
bottled water, food or snacks for the way home

Last time I went Sloquet it was all road. Is the road to the Skookumchuck springs a more entertaining drive?

It's high grade FS road all the way there. You may wanna take the raptor for this one.

My wife and i would like to come but I'm debating on taking my truck instead of the Jeep. When you guys say high grade forest service road what does that mean? could i take a leveled 4x4 pickup on this trip without damaging it?

****wont be able to make it, didn't realize it was thanksgiving****

It really is a graded logging road. A civic can drive there in comfort. The fun will be taking a dip in the springs.

A Civic might be able to drive there but not in Comfort there is at least one section we're at least a truck or an SUV would be recommended

I intend to be there, I have to replace front shock bushings and figure out which tire is bouncing though.
