The Granite Hot Springs Pool is located at the end of the Granite Creek Road and is situated just above Granite Creek Falls. If you aren't camping in the area, be prepared for a long scenic drive to the pool on a bumpy dirt road. During the winter months the hot springs are accessible only via snowmobile, dog sled, skiing and via fat biking. No alcohol is allowed in the pool area to protect public safety, prevent drinking and driving, and preserve the family-friendly character of this special place. Please respect the no alcohol rule and plan accordingly.
