It’s not a bike ride, but since we are talking back country

That is a beautiful trail up Gold Creek. I drug my little kids up to the lower falls last summer - stunning is right. And since the park is literally the closest park to my home, I have no reason to not visit often. It’s hard to believe I’m within 45 minutes of these places now being in Maple Ridge, and I love it. My brother wants to climb Golden Ears, but he is in worse shape than me. It is however a goal for us both one day - something to work towards and not be helped down by search and rescue! Thanks for the photos Keith.

A few months back I drove the Xterra to the back side of Alouette Lake via access at Stave Lake. Man that is beautiful country back there. Well-traveled yes, but not crowded by any stretch. Again, I was on the dirt within 30 minutes of leaving my driveway. Any car can get up here being careful. A Subaru is well within reach. I didn’t engage 4wd until coming back down as it’s just easier on everything not having to use the brakes. It’s not wheeling, it’s just nice driving and beautiful scenery.

Here is a photo of the back half of Alouetle Lake looking south. That narrows you see, well Gold Creek is another half way down that far (South) end of the lake.

Here’s my son in front of about half of Stave Lake…

…and a view from the end of the road I took with Mt. Robie Reid (2095m/6874 ft) in the background. There was a bit of a wash out, and the road ended only about 500 meters further up, so I wussed and called it a day. I’m not geared for digging the truck out, really. I was hoping to climb to snow as I had 2 Mexican and 1 German exchange students with me, but we fell way short! the snow's another 1000' above us at the top of this mountain.

I'd like to know how to get up that road Byron, be nice to head up there just for the view and burn some smokies over a small fire.

From where you turn off Dewdney Trunk Rd at the Stave Falls dam, it's only about an hour to this trail head where I took this photo. I'd totally be into taking a drive in there with you all for a lunch, sounds like a great plan.

Does Robyn's date work for you? Sounds like a good starting point to me.
