    ATV Users The ATV trail is closed to motor vehicles March 15 to July 15 of each year to protect early season Grizzly Bear range. ATVs must stay on the trail and park in the designated area at the lookout. ATV's are strictly prohibited in the alpine off of the trail. Vehicles are also required to be cleaned of vegetation prior to using the trail to prevent the spread of noxious weeds.

    For additional information about the Revelstoke ATV Club see their website: http://revelstokeatvclub.com

    There is a separate trail(3.3km, 590m elevation)for hikers to the lookout. Hikers be aware when reaching the alpine the trail is in grizzly bear habitat and route finding can be tricky.

  • Driving Directions:The trailhead is approximately 36km up the Akolkolux - Dumont FSR. This is an active industrial road--using a two-way radio with resource road channels is necessary. From Revelstoke, follow Airport Way south to the end of the pavement. Take the Akolkolux FSR past Echo Lake Recreation Site, past the turn off for McCrae Lake, and carry on the Akolkolux-Dumont FSR. The Backroad Mapbook, or other mapping tools are recommended due to the numerous branch roads and the tendency of the directional signage to go missing.
