Directions to the trailhead

This is basically the same as Joffre Lakes. Take route 99 from Vancouver. Pass through Pemberton, going straight through the traffic lights. Continue on another 6km to Mount Currie, follow the road through the village to a sharp left hand turn. After this sharp turn, make a right at the intersection, heading towards Lillooet. Head up the Duffy. Passing the Joffre lakes parking lot, continue for another couple km, and park at the salt sheds on the right (if travelling in summer you can drive up the road to your left just before the salt sheds. Road is becoming overgrown but if you don't mind a few scratches and have 4wd you can drive to the end.)

Detailed description of the trail

The trail winds steeply up through forest into the Alpine to the cabin. The alpine is easy flat walking. From the end of the logging road to the cabin shouldn't take much more than a couple hours. Stay left at the junction to Rohr lake (signed)
