The Windfall Lake area, west of Tumbler Ridge, offers some of the best alpine hiking in the region. There is the option of returning along a different route, plus further alpine options; these are more challenging, suitable for experienced hikers with good route-finding skills. The alpine ridges are often windy, and fog may roll in unexpectedly. Take a GPS, map and compass, and be prepared to use them.

We hike this at least 3 times a year. It's not too challenging to the lake itself. The hard part comes after the lake. Pinnacle Peak and Tunnel Cave are two extensions to this hike which are both very challenging.
