Berg Lake trail has been closed due to extreme flooding & hikers had to be evacuated by helicopter. BC Parks expect access to be closed till July 18 & all reservation fees will be refunded.

Looks like Kinney Lake or the flats just north of the lake -- the "low" walk through the forest.
On my September trips, I often wonder what raging torrents must pass beneath the bridges earlier in the season, threading the gravel streambeds, and how tent sites can possibly be positioned so close to Kinney Lake proper and at river's edge at Empire Falls.
Pretty wide flood plains along sections of the route.

Yes, and once you descend from Whitehorn there is really no other way across. This is why they had to helicopter evac hikers 'stranded' above.



It's quite crazy summer here btw, historic heat wave that caused all this melting. I am frankly surprised there are still no wildfires (except around Lytton, BC)

Default Mt. Assiniboine access question

Hey folks, curious whether anyone knows the state of the Mitchel River FSR route into Assiniboine. We are thinking about staying at Cabin Lake, then heading over the pass into the main park to do some exploring. Would going in that way be more ideal than via Simpson River Trail, thank you.
