Trail Description:

This remote Provincial Park rewards with alpine meadows and outstanding views.

Access:

Approx 9.4km west of Sorrento on Hwy 1, turn left onto Squilax-Anglemont Rd and follow it for approx 12km towards Scotch Creek. Turn left/north on the Scotch Creek Forest Service Rd #670 - watch carefully for the road at the top of a long hill. Travel 12.5km along this road to the Kwikoit Recreation Site. Stay on #670 and at 22km the road takes a sharp turn where it crosses a creek. Stay left. At 27.5km the Adams Forest Service Rd joins on the left. Keep right and stay on #670. Just before the 35km marker turn off to the right onto #680 - from here it is 4wd or hike. Cross a creek and take the next left, going steeply up the mountain through several switchbacks. Keep right. At 3.5km from the #670 turn off watch for an ATV quad trail into the trees on the left. This is the beginning of the trail.

NOTE: If you reach a point where the road narrows due to land sliding you’ve gone too far. Back track, looking for the ATV track.
