The highest peak along the Elk/ Thurston ridge
The first part of the hike is a steady climb up the forest service road. Be sure to follow the obvious trail leading up at each intersection. There are a lot of logging roads up here. Use your gps and the GPX on this page.
At about 2 kms up the road there will be decent parking lot sized area on your right, that is usually filled with garbage, bullet casings and shotgun shells left by the douche-bags that frequent the area. If you are brave enough to leave your vehicle unattended here, it could shave an hour off your hike. This is the last place you can get before needing a very capable 4×4, If you drive past here, you may be putting your life and the lives of your passengers in danger. If you do park at this spot, please try and help keep BC beautiful and pack out any extra garbage you can.
