Hike to Sulphur Creek Hot Springs

Rate this Adventure Washington Sulfur Creek Hot Springs Trailhead

Added by The Outbound Collective

While tricky to access, this two person pool is a pleasant spot to relax and look out on the old-growth forest and creek.

This pool is a lovely reward for the adventurous hiker – the trail is largely unmaintained as you head in past the trailhead.

At the first fork in the trail, turn left. After crossing a log bridge, continue to walk upstream (the trail can be hard to find, here) until you reach the pool. Brush off the bottom with the provided broom, then open the pipe to fill up.

This is a two-person pool, measuring around 90 degrees. As you might guess, the water does have a sulfur smell.

Hike to Elk Pass via "the Knife"

Washington / Snowgrass Flat Trailhead

This is a rather long out and back, however, it can also be done as a backpack, which would give you more time to explore the Goat Rocks Wilderness, which is highlighted in other Adventures.
