Default Jim Creek Headwaters, Shulaps - October 4, 2014

One last trip in the beauty Shulaps before we're done for the Winter (minus a possible snowshoe across Marshall Lake).

Surrounded by clouds, I didn't make the ridge, Ryan did, and we heard many gun shots throughout the day (first day of open buck season).

My wife and i were looking through your TR and I thought, "the place looks beautiful, the pics are beautiful", but my wife said "OMG! what a beautiful couple" Ha Ha. Our oldest daughter recently got married so she's still a bit teary eyed at the sight of beautiful couples .... actually, those are quite cute pics

That said, I really must get there one day. What road do you turn off from the Duffey lake road?

Cool - the view from Shulaps Peak is pretty amazing and so worth it. Just around the corner is my favourite little white lie

Thanks guys , Xj6response, that's very sweet!

LeeL, how do you mean?

You have to get to Lillooet and get on to Carpenter Lake rd. You can access Carpenter Lake rd via Duffey, Fraser Canyon, or the Hurley. The Hurley gives you the least mileage but all 3 routes take about the same time - approx a 6.5 hour drive (incl stops along the way).

The best way to access the high ridges, Shulaps peak (and others), and its sub-summits are via Yalakom FSR. Yalakom road is a turn off approx 20 mins before Carpenter Lake rd. Yalakom is a maze of FSRs, so do your research before getting up there (your last gas stop will be in Lillooet).

We've been hiking in via Marshall Lake rd. Marshall Lake rd is approx 2/3rds of the way along Carpenter Lake rd and from there you can basically choose your access (lots of FSR branches in the area).

For more info, here's an old thread I started when I was trying to learn about the area. Lots of great suggestions here:

Note: We didn't find the Canyon to Alpine book very useful for this specific area, but there are lots of good hikes listed in there.

Feel free to PM me for more details .
