No, the road to it was totally destroyed a few years ago. Restoration of that road will be a big deal. In the meantime, you can get to the hotsprings by using the new VOC trail to the Harrison Hut.

Does anyone know where the most RECENT report is on the trail into Meager/Harrison Hut is? I don't have access to a watercraft so I'm wondering if this can be done at this point by foot.

Thank you!

Not exactly what you asked for, but here's my report that included using the trail. Have a look at the VOC trail wiki for more complete information and location. I don't think I've seen a report of anyone completing the trail this year. And reaching the hotsprings using the trail means leaving the trail partway along. You don't need to cross any rivers, but the side creeks could be problematic at higher water.

I'll agree with SG.
Spring run off will complicate travel.

I was up Elaho Main and hit snow on the ground at the 50km mark two weeks ago, I suspect there's still significant snow on the VOC trail.

FYI, the Q&A for this TR mentions that they used snowmobiles to travel up to the Lillooet river crossing (AND across the river!!!) I have my doubts about car access that far yet.

Latest update from the Upper Lilooet IPP is that the road is drivable to km 43 (May 9). Culvert installation at km 27 week of May 12.

With spring runoff you better have a whitewater kayak to cross the Lillooet. Your best bet is to wait for the road on the south side of the lillooet river to melt out completely and use the VOC trail. The trail goes up to just over 1000m, so it could still be snowy right now.
