Self-Drive and Hike:
Follow the Callaghan Lake Forest Service Road to Callaghan Lake. It is about 8.5km from the Alexander Falls 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.
*Please remember that resident wildlife, including grizzly bears, are now entering their annual power-eating phase called 'hyperphagia'. They are biologically programmed to go into hyperdrive in the autumn season because they need to put on a thick layer of life-sustaining fat before they turn in for the winter.
It is your responsibility to ensure that your recreational pursuits do not contribute to human-wildlife conflict. Do your part to learn more about reducing conflict where we play by visiting WildSafeBC & AdventureSmart.
