Default Any hiking options near Anderson Lake / Seton lake?

Drove the Highline road past weekend and the area was jawdroppingly spectacular. Tried searching for some hiking in the area and couldn't find any. Anybody knows of trails in that neighborhood?

I used to live in the area and am not aware of any maintained, obvious hiking trails along the Highline. There are lots of nooks and crannies down quad and 4x4 roads but none seem to go all that far before getting bushed out. One option from Seton is the Lost Valley Trail, which heads up into a beautiful alpine valley. The local band was maintaining it, but I'm not sure of its current state. Agreed that it's a beautiful area. That there aren't a lot of maintained trails might be a good thing. Mission Ridge offers nice ridge walking if you are up that way and have a solid truck or SUV.

McGillivray Creek ATV trail up the McGillivray Main FSR. The south side of this trail isn't often used so may not be maintained.
Hunting trail to Nosebag from the high point on the Mission Mt road.
No trails up Connel Creek - only access is from the head of the valley.
Good trail to the west end of Mission Ridge from the Mission Ridge Powerline road (leaves the high point on the Mission Mt road).
Lost Creek trail from Seton Portage (multiple access points but most or all are from private land).
A spur trail off the Lost Creek trail goes up Spider Peak.
A trail along Seton Ridge (south side of Seton Lake) leaves the Seton Ridge Road as it crosses the ridge crest.
Old trail up Wade Creek leaves a logging spur off the Haylmore Main FSR.

Birkenhead peak from near Birkenhead lake, info in Matt Gunn's book. Barkley Valley/Twin Lakes off the Haylmore. Both possibly still snowbound.

Good posts, and useful info.

Used to work up there more than 30 years ago, and would like to check out for hiking possibilities.

Would be a cool place to venture.
