  • Driving Directions: Main Access: Commencing in Cranbrook, at the junction of Hwy 3/95 and Hwy 95A, follow Hwy 95A for 14.1 km to Wycliffe. Turn south (left) onto Wycliffe Park Road. Proceed 1.9 km, crossing the St. Mary River, to the junction of Wycliffe Park Road and Wycliffe Road. Turn south (right) onto Wycliffe Road, follow this road for 0.8 km to the junction with the Perry Creek Road. Turn west (right) onto Perry Creek Road and set your odometer to zero. This is a good 2 wheel drive, gravel road. At 2 km the Perry Creek Road is also signed St. Mary River Road. Follow this road to a junction at 3.7 km, where it splits into the Perry Main Road to your left and the St. Mary River Road to your right. Take the left fork, onto Perry Main Road and reset your odometer to zero. Keep an eye on your odometer as you proceed up Perry Main Road. At 1.9 km stay right on Perry Main FSR, crossing Perry Creek. Just past the 11 km road marker, continue left on the Perry Main FSR past the junction with Sawmill Creek FSR. Continue along the bottom of the Perry Creek drainage, crossing Perry Creek just after the 23 km marker. At 26.9 km, by your odometer, cross Galway Creek and stay right on the Perry Main FSR, bypassing Galway Creek Road. At the 32 km road marker you will see the trailhead sign for Richmond Lake on your left. The trailhead sign for Gold Run Lake is 600 m past the Richmond Lake sign. This last 600 m of road is rougher, so you may want to park at the Richmond Lake sign and walk up the road to the Gold Run Lake trailhead.
