Road: regular car, but rocky, bumpy road; open late spring and summer; gate closed some of the year to protect wetlands from off-road drivers
Please report off-road driving, with details and vehicle licence numbers, to the RCMP or the Ministry of Forests in Cranbrook.
In Cranbrook, take Cranbrook Street north to just before the overpass on Highway 3/95.
0 km: Turn right (east) onto 30th Avenue N., then immediately left onto a small paved road heading north parallel to the highway. When this small parallel road forks, take the left fork. (The right fork heads into the fenced compound of the Cranbrook Forest Service Southeast Fire Centre yard.)
200 m: At another fork, take the right-hand fork up to a yellow gate. If the gate is open, drive uphill into the community forest. (The left fork leads to parking for Isadore Canyon trail, also nice for biking.)
2.1 km: At a T-junction for Kettle Lake and Windy Bluff, continue straight. (The right-hand fork at the T heads south to the small ponds of Sylvan Lake and Four Lakes.)
2.6 km: Kettle Lake parking. The trail for Windy Bluff is on the south side of the parking lot.
