Drive east from Vernon on Highway #6, turn right onto Creighton Valley Road 1.7km past town of Lumby. Set odometer to zero here. At km 16.5 turn left onto Clier Lake Road, a dirt road opposite Bonneau Forest Service Road on right. Cross over cattle guard and remain on the primary roadway, left at km 18.4, travel past Clier Lake on your left, continue along the hillside climbing above the lake. At km 20.1 remain left, dropping downward and then up again. The road continues but deteriorates with steep rough sections and large puddles if it has been wet. Unless you have a high clearance 4x4 with low range you may want to park and walk to the trail head at 23.7 km. The road ends in a large open clearing and a trailhead sign at the far end.


Follow a 4x4 track through a swampy area at the northwest corner of the large clearing. About 50 meters past the swamp the trail will head off to the left. The trail is well defined and leads into large trees, meandering along and then climbs 200 meters up to the first hump where there is a green communications tower structure. Continue past the green communications cone, descending 75m into the saddle between the humps. The trail splits into two with the more defined path on the right. The trail merges with a double track trail as it begins an ascent up from the saddle to the second hump. The trail climbs steeply up a rock face to the summit.

Good views of Mable Lake to the north, Silver Star ski area and Lumby, and the Coldstream Valley and Kalamalka Lake Provincial Park to the west.
