One of the most common questions we are asked is how best to get to Pilgrim Hot Springs. There are a few ways to visit the springs and a variety of modes of transportation exist. Namely, the 60 mile road leading from Nome all the way to Pilgrim Hot Springs. Some choose to visit by air as well...
Driving the road requires a vehicle of some kind, but visitors come out in cars, trucks, bicycles, snowmachines, or four-wheelers. The first 53 miles of the Kougarok Road are generally well maintained but please take caution and drive slowly. At times, especially after hard summer rains the road can get rough with potholes and washboards. Flying rocks can be a bummer if they crack your windshield. Also, watch out for people pulled over on the side of the road. Please keep in mind that there are no gas stations or stores outside of Nome.
Two miles east of Nome head north on the Beam Road
The Beam Road turns into the Kougarok Road
Around mile 53 take a left onto a gravel road (on the corner will be an old yellow dozer & a green sign pointing to Pilgrim Hot Springs)
Take the Pilgrim Road for seven miles
Please park by the gate at the far end but do not block the gate
