Woss Fire Lookout (Woss)

  • Rec Site #:REC135981
  • Type:User Maintained
  • Fees:None
  • Campsites:0
  • Access:Trail

  • Site Description:The lookout has been shuttered for the winter season and will re-open again in May 2024.

    **The access road to the lookout parking lot and beyond is rough and 4x4 is highly recommended.

    In 2014, Recreation Sites and Trails BC launched a provincial project to restore abandoned fire lookouts and establish them as recreation sites to preserve the historical, cultural and heritage values of these spectacular areas to provide unique public recreation opportunities. The Woss Fire Lookout was included in this project and was replaced through combined efforts of a number of volunteers, agencies and organizations. The access trail is very steep and the hike very strenuous. Those that do make the climb are rewarded with spectacular views of Woss Lake, the Nimpkish Valley and Bonanza range. Hiking times vary but users should allow for 4 hours round trip. This is a day use site and users are reminded to pack out what they pack in. Campfires are prohibited. For more information please view the Woss Fire Lookout brochure at the bottom of the page.

  • Driving Directions:From the Woss Junction on Highway 19, continue north for 9.6 kms turning right at the Woss Lookout sign onto Markusen Main. Follow the signs along Markusen Main for 6.7 kms until you come to the kiosk and parking lot. From this point, continue on foot up the road to the trail head.
