Impossible to find the trailhead based on description so I’ll make it clear. At the TR 200 mark, if you have high clearance and 4 wheel, definitely keep driving up the main logging road to the right. If not, park and start walking up the logging road. The trailhead is about 50m past the 9.5 km mark. There is a orange diamond further down that is deceiving (around 9.4). That is NOT it. They have spray painted 9.5 in blue and orange at the top of the steep grind. Keep going a bit further and you will see 3 or 5 orange diamonds on the right. That is the trailhead. After that it’s very well marked. Did it with our chihuahua in about 2 hours. Would definitely try the hike up to mount brew past the lake.

Climbed with my Family, wife, 9 year old, 15 year old an two dogs...great day! Drove up to Km 4 on Brew main FSR, 4x4 required, Got off trail following ribbons for an orienteering course but eventually found the trail and had a great hike! Definitely steep in sections but well marked trail. The lake was worth the effort had a quick swim and started down as the horse flies were brutal.

Poorly marked trail but marked nonetheless, just have to keep your eyes peeled. Once you pass the old logging road the trail is marked very well with ribbons and little inukshuks. Steep as hell but worth the climb. Definitely make sure to hike up to Brew Hut from lake for the 360 views.

This trail is beautiful once you start on the trail head, however you have to walk about 2.5 km on the train track from the Brandywine falls parking , south direction, to access the trail head. You have to bush walk to access the train track. If you blink you will miss the access to the trail. It is an extremely steep terrain, the use of poles is highly recommended. Because of time restraints, we turned around after 1 km of uphill. GPS a MUST!

This trail is really poorly marked. You spent 2.8 km heading out on an illegal route following along the CN railway tracks. Then the trailhead starts at this point to the right not very clearly marked. The trail is very steep from the onset. Very beautiful though. We turned around after 1/2 hour as we waisted so much time just getting to the trailhead. Almost 6 km of the hike is walking on a train track wondering where you will jump to when the next train comes along.

Ok trail, really rocky and really steep for a section or two. Brings you to a nice lake. Dont hesitate to park futher on the lug road.
