was able to 4x4 up to about 1km from the parkinglot, then stopped for snow & road erosion. Hiked about 1km up the trail(?) then just explored around the boulder field & trekked out. must go back in warmer season!

Attempted today but couldn't quite make it to drinnion lake. Lots of snow on the road, trail is under 2-6ft of snow. Will try again in a few weeks!

Absolute hidden gem - breathtaking throughout and rewarded with a fantastic lake. More trails from the campsite at the lakes leading higher up. Went last August and saw the park rangers working on some new outhouses! Highly highly recommended.

I have always meant to come back here because it was one of my favorite hikes I've done. The access is from Slocan. Subalpine wonders and and fishing on Drinnon lake. In the area? Go!

Beautiful area. One of my favorite places on the planet. The scramble to the top of Lucifer Peak is a must. For the most part, the scramble is pretty easy...its the last 100meters that got a little sketchy for us.
