Suggestions for Pumphouse Hiking??

A group of us will be floating pumphouse to state bridge in a few weeks and would love to camp somewhere we can hike, or at least stop to hike along the way. Are there any nice hikes in that stretch that someone can recommend???

Thanks!
Rebecca

Have never hiked along pumphouse, but the radium hot springs is a good stop off. Right on the river and you can pull the raft right up to it.

Not much hiking to be had on the river itself other than wondering around in the woods. By car you can take the Blacktail road out of Radium. Just over the tracks it heads back east out of Radium and becomes a Jeep trail that ends up at HWY 134 to the north. Just out of Radium maybe 2 miles or so up the road on the left you will find a trailhead. Can't remember the name. Great little morning or evening hike. I've seen elk, bear and even a mountain lion on that hike.
