Detailed description of the trail

This is a historic trail, one of the oldest in the Pemberton Valley. Used for over 100 years by pack horses. There is a cabin at the lake, is serious disrepair. The trail winds up through the forest, and flattens out for some very easy alpine rambling through the valley to Tenquille pass. A short descent brings you to the lake. Camp at the lake and stay for a few days to bag some of the many peaks in the area. This truly is a trail for everyone, as it is extremely rewarding without too much strain. To Tenquille pass from the beginning of the 4wd logging road is 900m elevation gain, but it is spread out so it doesn't hurt too much

There is another access, from the first bridge on the Hurley, but I've not yet been all the way up that trail so I can't give accurate details.
