Roe Creek FSR Cabin Barricaded
 
Long story short, there were recently several large boulders placed in the driveway of this rustic cabin to prevent people from using it. People who access Cypress Peak and Brew Lake will know this cabin well. On a hunch, I contacted Northwest Landscape and Stone Supply (604-435-4842‬) today who have several mineral claims (rock harvesting) in the area but not under this cabin and spoke with Bob Tiller (Manager). He said they put the boulders there and has every right to do so under their mineral claim in order to protect their claims. He asked me if I owned the cabin, which I don’t, and neither does Mr Tilller. I have contacted Squamish MFLNR and the local Inspector of Mines Permitting regarding this issue and am waiting for a reply from the Inspector. What will this company do next...install a gate above Lucille Lake to keep everyone out of Roe Creek?

It is possible they are worried about the economics of the project, maybe they fear hikers taking rock samples.

They're removing the bridge over Roe Creek on the 26th
There's 28 new cross ditches on Roe FSR and the R220 road is blocked

I heard about this. Seems incredible excessive if they are removing the bridge. As for the cabin, its good to hear the boulderss have been removed. I'm sure the builders are thankful for you not posting the detailed location.

I think the builder may have expired a few years ago....it's a pretty old cabin.

As far as the Roe Creek bridge goes, it has been removed. Now I am wondering, how will Powder Mountain Catskiing get across the creek in the winter as this is their route to Cypress?

Getting across the creek is one problem, the tank traps on the road on the east side are another. I'm thinking the logging company that removed the bridge doesn't like the cat skiing operation.

On Nov 11 I was hoping to go up Brew however the road was blockaded and the bridge was gone. I did though get to talk to the logging contractor that was working further up the other road and the bridge was removed due to rotten wood that was about to give out. He said that the bridge is not going to be replaced as there is no active logging up there.

He did say though that during the winter he thinks that the snow cats will have no trouble making a snow bridge to cross the river and had no problems with that.

Another thing that he mentioned is that they they were in consultation with one of the hiking clubs and if they raise the money for a foot bridge that the logging company would build it. He could not remember the clubs names and I did not ask about how much would be needed.

Side note: there were people at Roe cabin when I drove past.

Planning on heading up to Brew Hut, Saturday morning. Is it now impossible to cross Roe Creek via the FSR? Any other options? Thanks!

The question isn't whether or not they are able to make a snow bridge through the creek, they certainly do have the ability to do so with their equipment, but whether or not they have permission to do so by MFLNR and MOE. You can get further information by contacting FrontCounterBC at 1-877-855-3222. In some situations one has only give notice they will be building a snow bridge across a creek, or river, and in other situations there is a lot of paper work involved.

I think the club that the gentleman may have been referring to is the FMCBC.

Did the hike up to Brew Lake 3 weeks ago, if you travel down stream 500 meters someone put up a cable to cross the creek.
We couldn't use it as I had 2 large dogs with us, we bush walked and found a dry creek bed followed that another 500 or so and found a debris field with large logs we easily walked over. The only hard thing is bush wracking and the stinging needles.
Brew lake still had snow, great long walk.

Does anyone have any information regarding when the trappers cabin on Roe Creek FSR burned down?
