Lots of information on trails in the nakusp region at www.nakusptrails.ca
this trail makes an awesome option to hike up, do a hot springs soak and then return, or mountain bike up and return, or a descent from the hot springs with someone else driving your vehicle for the pick up. can be easily combined with kimbol lake trail.
In a forested setting right on the Halfway River there are two main pools to soak in. One set of pools has comfortable soaking boxes and decks made of salvaged wood. The other pool is right down adjacent to halfway river on the water; follow a 100 Meter trail to find it. The water comes out of a pipe at a temperature much too hot to soak in. You can control the flow, and add river water or snow to cool it down. There is a shelter for changing and an outhouse on site. Watch out for Poison Ivy in the summer months, the surrounding area is covered with it!
Driving Directions:From Nakusp drive approx. 26km North to Halfway River. Just before going over the bridge that crosses the halfway river, there is a FSR to the right.

As you continue the drive keep your eyes open for the halfway river. Slow down driving over the bridge at Halfway River and take your first left on the FSR after the bridge.

Just behind the toilet you will see the path leading down to the various hot spring pools. If you have a high clearance 4×4 you can drive down the old road that leads to the toilet; there is space to park there. Park at the top and check the road before attemtping to drive it.
