Thanks for the report and pics. We have also been looking for some high trailheads to get to the alpine with the little one. This is very inspiring and looks like a great trip. Can you please tell if the info on the trail wiki is current and what the condition of the road is?
Road to the trailhead is in good condition, a couple of wide cross ditches and that's about it. I took a Ford Escape 4x4, but anything with a bit of clearance should be fine.

The wiki data is just stubbed, I might toss some data in later but I'd also recommend picking up either the "Scrambles in SW BC" or "Canyon to Alpine: Lillooet Hiking Guide" books - both have entries for it. Follow Downton FSR to roughly 10-11 km, take "Branch 2" (right), follow it to the parking area. You'll see a "Trail" sign in the replanted forest on the right. 2.8km one way to the lake, 350m gain.
