Semaphore lakes area is a short distance from well maintained gravel road.

The area offers a quick access base to surrounding "school of railroad mountains" such as Locomotive, Tender, Caboose, Handcar, Faceless, Face etc.

Directions:

Go upstream on Pemberton Valley from Pemberton intersection. In 20k, turn right to go into Hurnley Forest Service road. There is a bridge in 19k, a small waterfall on the right in 21k, then there is a small pull out place on the left at 22k. There is a flagging to go down to flat section of the trail off the road.




Please check the bottom of the Description (above left; click) for the author's written directions.

If anyone goes up there soon, pls. keep an eye out for a black case with prescription glasses (about $600 value) I forgot at our campground near to the lake with (unrestricted) view onto Locomotive mountain. Please contact me if found and brought back with you - that would be so much appreciated!

And running rivers plus waterfalls are loud, camp with a view of them only.

Please contact me through trailpeak if you found them and brought them with you! That would be so much appreciated!

Footpaths leading all OVER the place, so the exploration is limitless. Lake after little lake, all with their own personality. Downside Flies are brutal during the climb through the forest (at least in July). Comment Considering its relative secrecy and distance from a major center, there were a surprising number of cars at the parking area. Crowds don't matter, though, because once you're in the basin you can just go off on your own. Only 45mins of climbing and you're in paradise. Pretty sweet.
