Haven't been to Emma Lake this year. Even if you can't drive far up the branch road, it's not unpleasant walking by logging road standards - mostly in the shade.

Thanks MOW I've pretty much decided on Freda for tomorrow,my problem is with the logging roads.They are doing a LOT of logging,and I don't have a radio. I get Sun/Mon off,and Mon. to Fri. it's just not cool for the Cavalier to be up there LOL!
From reading your TR on Emma Lake,I want a couple of nights for that one I also need to get a backpacking tent because the roof on the cabin has caved in due to the snowpack this year! The locals all agree that late Sept.or early Oct. would be a good time to go,no bugs. There's a couple of cabins up Freda,so I'm hoping to hit one of those tomorrow night

That's a shame about the roof; that cabin is obviously an ongoing labour of love.

PR community forest has provided funds for a new roof for the Emma cabin - believe it will be going on later this year. You might be able to get a bit of a way up the branch road with the Cav, but the stream crossing will definitely be a show stopper.

Mount Freda - two different approaches, be careful which one you take! Going by memory, I think it's D branch that you should take for the trailhead.

No, not wrecked. Just roof looking a little sad.
