  • Site Description:A moderate to difficult 6.5 km trail that leads to a scenic alpine lake and ridges. From the highway the trail follows along the north side of Granite (Hatchery) Creek past a number of small waterfalls. Of special interest, located approximately 1 km from the trailhead is a loop trial which takes you past the remains of the original Dominion Government hatchery, between the trail and the creek. After 3.5 km. the trail crosses the creek and begins to climb steeply for another 3 km into alpine. The last half km. takes you through an alpine meadow to Gunsight Lake. For hikers not interested in undertaking on the steep climb to the lake, the bridge at 3.5 km. is a good location to take a break and return to the trailhead.

  • Driving Directions:From Terrace drive south for approx. 18 km. along Highway 37 to Furlong Bay Provincial Park campground. The trailhead is accessed via the gravel pit road. Walk past the first gate and keep to the right prior to the gravel pit. Follow the old road paralleling the power line for approximately 200 m. until you reach the trailhead. Note: Parking is limited. Do not park in front of any gates or block access to the gravel pit.
