This could probably branch off to it's own thread, but that's the old route up to Golden Ears following an overgrown logging road. In the 70s and 80s you'd go up East Canyon, cross the wire burma...

In addition to the map scan you posted, we found an old map on one of the boards in the park that also seems to indicate a Burke Falls:

Hector Fergusson from Pitt Lake?

I was looking at one of the BC topo maps and noticed some old logging roads marked in leading up from Williams Landing at Pitt Lake. From the topography, it looks like it should be possible to reach...

Went hiking with some friends up Alouette yesterday and decided to take the long way back (instead of descending Incline) along the logging road through the UBC research forest. Last I was through...

Roaming the Rail Grades on Alouette Mountain

Originally planning on sunny weather and heading up Mt Nutt to get a view of the valleys with fall colours, the low cloud this morning quashed our plans. We decided it wasn't worth the steep hike to...
