  • 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 the �Wycliffe Park Road�. Proceed 1.9 km, crossing the St. Mary River, to the junction of �Wycliffe Park Road� with �Wycliffe Road�. Turn south (right) onto �Wycliffe Road�, follow this road for 0.8 km to its junction with the �Perry Creek Road�. Turn west (right) onto �Perry Creek Road� and set your odometer to �0�. 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 �0�. Keep an eye on your odometer as you proceed up �Perry Main Road�. At 1.9 km stay right on �Perry Main Forest Service Road�, crossing Perry Creek. Just past the 11 km road marker, continue left on the �Perry Main Forest Service Road� past its junction with the �Sawmill Creek Forest Service Road�. 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 Forest Service Road�, 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.
