  • Site Description: The Bluff Lake Pioneer Trail was originally the only way around Bluff Lake before the road was blasted out. Today it is enjoyed mainly by hikers wanting to get a view of the valley and surrounding area. The trail is a relatively short hiking trail, about 1.1 km long, that ascends rather quickly to the rock bluffs above Bluff Lake, offering hikers a very scenic view of the West Branch Valley. Travel time is 30-45 minutes with a 15 minute walk back along the road to return to your vehicle.

  • Driving Directions: From Highway 20, 1.5 km east of Tatla Lake, take the Tatlayoko Lake Road to the Bluff Lake Road at 4.2 km. Turn right on the Bluff Lake Road and travel 17.8 km to a pullout which is the trail head and parking area for the trail. The Pioneer Trail parking area is 1 km past the end of Bluff Lake where there is also a day use area with parking and boat launch.
