Registered trail with cabin that is maintained by Varsity Outdoor Club. Lightly used access is via Chance Creek and Roe Creek FSRs and branch R233; which are all shown on the AllTrails mapping. 4wd vehicle recommended, but 2wd ok with skilled driver. There are several rocky washouts that are not too deep. High clearance not required. From Highway 99 take Chance Creek FSR (turnoff is marked with Powder Mountain red snowcat). At Km 3 turn right onto Roe Creek FSR and follow well used road to near the end. Tracking with Alltrails while driving recommended, to avoid taking wrong side roads. In 2018 the road is active for logging vehicles up to km 4. Trailhead is at km 10. The trail is marked, consistent with moderate grades, mostly smooth with some boulder sections and relatively dry. There are plenty of small lakes and streams for drinking water. Good day hike that starts at 1100m elevation and peaks out at about 1700m. Look up Brew hut on internet for background and usage rules.

This is a great trail that is not yet in the guidebooks. Since it starts at 1100m, your vehicle does most of the climbing for you. The road is in good condition, due to nearby active logging - up to Km 4; so expect log trucks. Recommend an AWD vehicle, but high clearance not necessary. Grades are moderate and consistent. Trail has only small muddy areas. There were mosquitoes. Large areas to explore above tree line. In late July there was no snow. This is a popular ski-touring route in the winter. The area gets much more snow than Whislter; hence the shorter summer accessible season for hiking. If hiking before July expect snow. Consider doing the 10 K hike in and staying at the Brew Creek cabin. You will not need a tent or stove; so can travel light. Register on line. Limited firewood is expensive for the volunteers to provide; so consider bringing your own.
