Road: may need high-clearance 4x4 for rutted and bumpy last 1.5 km
0 km: From Highway 93/95, take turnoff into Canal Flats and head north past the sawmill and onto the main street of the town, Grainer Road. Turn right off the main street onto any of the dirt tracks heading east. Behind the stores there is a larger road; turn left (north).
800 m: This part is tricky, as nothing is signed. Head north, N59949-E85205. The road you want is the centre route, a nondescript dirt road climbing gradually north that will soon be high above the lake, having gained 240 m (800 ft.). When searching for the access road, don’t descend to the lakeshore (left) and don’t climb up the larger road (right) that makes a large right bend and heads east high above the Kootenay River.
1.3 km: Take left fork
5.6 km: Park at the top of the rise, at a road fork, N61300-E83600, at 944 m (3,100 ft.).
