Itinerary:

Stein Valley "Mini Traverse" described in G. White's guide book. Descend 1900m from Duffey Lake to the Okanagan (Lytton) over 50 km and 4 days, from Sat July 20 to Tues July 23.

One of the last un-logged valley wilderness areas in southern BC. Highlights include traveling through many different micro-climates from alpine to forest to dry Okanagan, and discovering ancient first nations petroglyphs and other sites of historical interest along the way.

The trail is only maintained from Cottonwood junction to Lytton, so expect lots of deadfall to scramble over for the first day. Getting to the Fraser river requires advanced hiking abilities, including side-hilling and steep terrain (minimal exposure).


Recommended Items to Bring:
Use our Event Checklists to make sure you have everything you need.

Backpacking equipment and preparation for changing weather.


How to Get There:
Event Directions:

The plan is to first leave a car in Lytton and then drive to Duffey Lake. Will need at least one other vehicle than my own in order to do this trip, plus a limited number of people on the trip so that they will fit in vehicles.
