  • Site Description:Description - Lassie Lake to Clark-Maloney Lakes The first few hundred metres of the Clark Lake trail follow an overgrown skid road through an old cutblock to a wire gate. Please leave the gate as you found it. Shortly after the gate the trail narrows and enters a forest of small lodgepole pine. The trail winds across the gently rolling forested landscape and crosses several muddy areas before reaching a junction at 1.75 km just before Clark Lake. Stay left at this junction and follow the trail for a short distance to the forested campsite on the east side of the lake. Clark Lake is a medium-sized lake with a shallow, weedy, muddy shoreline. There is good fishing in the lake. Fishers should consider bringing an inflatable boat or hip waders to reach deeper water. The trail continues along the south shore of Clark Lake past the developed campsite, and slowly swings eastward towards Maloney Lake, another 2 km distance. Description - Cup Lake to Maloney Lake The trail into Maloney Lake starts at the end of a small road in the middle of a cutblock. This trail is not signed and has not been maintained for some time. Look for orange markers on trees that mark the trail as it skirts the bottom of the cutblock and proceeds south. As the little-used trail nears the campsite on the south side of the lake it joins a road leading from a cutblock into the site. The campsite itself is located in a small grassy opening in the trees. Maloney Lake is small, muddy, and shallow. The shores are so marshy it is difficult to approach open water easily. However, the lake offers good trout fishing if you persevere.

  • Driving Directions:The trailheads into these two campsites can be reached from three directions: From the north via Trapping Creek Forest Service Road (FSR); from the east via the Main Kettle River - State FSR; and from the west via Beaverdell - State FSR. Directions are provided below for the most commonly used access route from the west. For information on other access routes consult local road maps. From the junction of highways 3 and 33 in Rock Creek, turn north onto Highway 33. Follow this highway for 50.8 km to the junction with the Beaver Creek Road located just north of the town of Beaverdell. Turn right onto this road and follow it for 24.6 km to the junction with the State FSR. Turn left onto State FSR, and continue for 3.5 km to the junction with Lassie FSR. Stay left at this junction and proceed for another 1.9 km to a junction with a small road on the left across from Cup Lake. This is the access road into Maloney Lake, and it is narrow and has frequent waterbars. If you don't have a high-clearance vehicle, you probably shouldn't attempt to drive this road. Turn left up this road and proceed for another 2.8 km to the trailhead. To find the Clark Lake trailhead, proceed north on Lassie FSR another 3.3 km past the turnoff to Maloney Lake (a total of 5.2 km up Lassie FSR). Look for a small parking area and a brown 4 x 4 post marking the trailhead on the left just past the Lassie Lake campsite turnoff.
