  • Site Description:The Windfall Lake trail is a challenging hike up to a gorgeous alpine lake. Many hikers choose to either make it a day trip and turn around at the lake, or camp over night. More advanced hikers with honed route-finding skills have the option of continuing with a few alpine route options. GPS, map and compass use recommended.

  • Driving Directions:From Tumbler Ridge, drive north towards Chetwynd on Highway 29 for 25 km to the turnoff for the former Bullmoose Mine. Follow the Bullmoose mine road for 17 km and turn left onto the Windfall Creek Forest Service Road. This turnoff is just before an electrical substation. Follow the Windfall Creek road as it heads up the valley of South Bullmoose Creek. There is a junction at the 9 km mark ? do not take the turnoff to the left, but head straight, cross a small bridge, and continue up the road. This road climbs over a pass at km 14. Turn left at km 23 and follow this side-road for 1.8 km until it ends at a deactivated crossing of Windfall Creek. The signed trailhead is on the right. -Courtesy of WNMS (Detailed brochure attached as a pdf)
