Default Meager Creek Hot Springs Trail Report?

Hi all,

I am planning a hike to Meager Creek Hot Springs for next weekend. Has anyone been up recently? I am worried about snow conditions. I have done the hike twice before so am familiar with the difficulty level, just not sure about this year's snow pack.

Thank you for any information!

Regards,
Amanda

Lillooet South FSR is blocked by rockfall and avalanche debris near km 16. At least two weeks until it reopens

Thanks for the response! Just checked road closures, not seeing what you mentioned? Also, not sure if the grizzly closures effect that area or not...

Bridge repairs and/or replacements along the Lillooet South September 12 - 30, 2016. Bridges located at 3km, 13km and 18km will be upgraded or replaced; delays and road closures expected for the duration of the works.
** see above for South Creek grizzly closures **

Because they haven't updated the website yet. This only happened a couple days ago.

Default Hot Springs

If you are interested in going to a hike-in hot springs;

The road to Meager is definitely closed due to a rock slide. The only access is by crossing the river by boat.

Key-hole hot springs is closed due to bear sightings. (Allthough I am suspicious of the hydro people's motives)

That leaves August Jacobs for hikers. The river is still covered by a snowbridge, which is a bit tricky to cross. The upper tub was demolished this Winter. This hot springs makes for a fun day hike.

Someone demolished the upper tub? That's rude, it was just put in last year!

It was Mother Nature!
A brute force removed all vegetation, soil, and of course, a puny man made addition to the natural hot tub.

Whew, hope things have settled down a bit by next month melt-wise. Last thing I want is a massive slide killing me while I'm enjoying the water.

Cool

Thanks for all the wonderful help people!

Access is definitely out but we are very interested in August Jacobs.

LILLOOET SOUTH Industrial Use FSR
Rock slide at 17km; no access beyond that point..

I would love any more info possible! Specifically, where does the trailhead start? And what's this about a snowbridge?
