LUSK PASS
Distance 8.1 km one way, height gain 198 m, moderate
Mainly a dark forest trail with a few steepish hills that crosses a low pass between Powderface trail the road and Hwy. 68 at Lusk Creek day-use area. There is nothing scenic about it until you arrive in the cutblocks.
Start: East access Powderface Trail (road) at Lusk Pass trailhead.
West access Hwy. 68 (Sibbald Creek Trail) at Lusk Creek day-use area.
Difficulty: Easy hiking.
Note: Shortly after you cross Lusk Creek the official route turns left at a T-junction. A shorter, rougher trail (the pre-flood route) trail carries straight on and joins the official trail close to Lusk Creek day-use area. See map
  • Northeast of the pass. A glimpse of Mount Baldy
