Here’s where you’ll find the latest notes & updates about specific springs in the East Kootenays. If a spring name has no other information listed under it, then there haven’t been any changes since the book was published. This page contains only the current known status; for a history of changes, see the News & Updates page.
August 23, 2014: According to a recent report on bivouac.com, the road is now open to the very end and the parking area for the Dewar Creek trail. In the last few kilometres, there are two creeks to ford; one may require 4 wheel drive.
February 4, 2020: Parks Canada has temporarily closed the pools after an inspection following minor renovations uncovered structural defects. The pools will remain closed until repairs can be made
August 31, 2015: A report on SoakersForum indicates that the road to the springs has been deactivated from both the Premier Lake side and from Top of the World / Lussier. It sounds as if the road is now impassable to bikes, ATVs, snowmobiles and the like. It’s now a couple of kilometres of rough hiking to get to the springs. The good news is that the pools at the springs are intact.
