Heads up to anyone looking to access Ram Creek Hotsprings for a soak, or ride the Ram Creek FSR through to the Lussier River FSR. The section of road that runs through the Ram Creek Ecological Area has been decommissioned and is currently completely impassible to anything but foot traffic. We tried to get to the springs on quads from both sides on the weekend. Coming from the Skookumchuck side the last 2.2km of the road up to the hotsprings has been dug up with a backhoe in a checkerboard pattern, and would make for miserable hiking. Coming from the Top of the World side the last 0.8km of the road down to the hotsprings has been resloped, and a decent foot trail is forming. We ending up hiking down to the springs after coming around from the backside. There is some elevation gain coming back out, but it is a fairly easy hike from that side. Thankfully they did not destroy the soaking pools at the hotsprings, and they were as good as ever. Well, the best shape I have seen them since the mudslide a few years ago anyways. It was pretty disappointing coming up on the wall of dirt though. They spent a lot of tax money destroying that road, and I for one would like to know the name of the bureaucrat who thought that was a good use of funds.
