From Downtown Chase follow Pine Street north to the Neskonlith Lake Road. Travel west along this gravel road for 3 km, where you will come to a fork. Take the right fork and go up the hill. You will be rewarded here with a spectacular view of Little Shuswap Lake, the Villages of Chase and Adams Lake First Nations, as well as the South Thompson River and the farmlands along the VLA road. Stay on this road for another 10 km. until you pass under the B.C. Hydro transmission lines. Watch for the parking lot on your left.

Alternatively (coming from the east) travel north across the Squilax Bridge, then left on the Adams Lake Road. Watch for the Skmana Ski signs, turning left/west and following the Loakin-Bear Creek Road to the recreation site.
