Default Brew Lake- Oct 22 2020

We got to the bridge over Roe Creek about 10 AM to find this sign and 28 new cross ditches. The 3rd one was deep and full of mud, so we parked there! After an hour we come to the R220 spur which has a huge pile of rocks and stumps for about 20 meters. This was the hardest part of the trail to navigate.
After 2 hours of road walking we get to the trailhead. This is an awesome trail!
Another 1 1/2 hours and we’re at the lake.
Nice alpine meadows and mountain views.
I hope they make an access route over Roe Creek so others can enjoy this route in the future.

Great place, it's too bad they have to destroy the road like that.

That's probably the biggest difference when it comes to hiking in Rockies and hiking on the Coast. In Rockies 90% of the time it's asphalt road to trailhead; on the Coast crux is often actually getting to trailhead!

It is a great disappointment; was planning on heading up there this year but did not get around to it.

Now I wish I did

Hiking is what keeps you young of mind and heart. When the going gets tough, the tough get going..............

I'm so glad I got up there in July of 2019. Mind you the bridge across Roe Creek was a bit tenuous to say the least.

I couldn't get all the way up to the trailhead in my Mitsubishi Outlander, parked about a kilometer away from it. That was one of my best hikes of 2019 right up to the peak, brew lake and the hut. it was so beautiful and not a soul around.

This intense deactivation is a bit untoward. All of those roads are on Crown land, public land. The company doing the deactivation does not have private land rights.
