Don’t forget it’s a wee bit different getting to Callaghan Lodge in the summer…

A) Self-Drive / Hike
Follow the Callaghan Lake Forest Service Road to Callaghan Lake. It is about 8.5km from the Callaghan Country base to Callaghan Lake on a rough road and it takes about 20 – 35 minutes. We recommend using a vehicle with good clearance (4WD preferred). The trail to the lodge begins about 250m before you reach the lake – look for the sign on your left. There is a small clearing just off the road – park here. From here, the hike is 4.5 km and will take between 1.5 – 2 hours depending on your ability and fitness level.

B) Self-Drive / Mountain Bike
From Callaghan Valley Rd, turn left immediately after crossing the bridge and drive into the parking lot. Park here. From here, bike up the Callaghan Lake Forest Service Road. You will see the turn for Wild Spirit Trail on the left approximately 500m up the road. Turn left onto Wild Spirit Trail and follow this rough track 12.5km to Callaghan Lodge. You should allow 2 – 3 hours for the ride in (elevation gain: 560m).
