|Stein Valley "Mini Traverse" described in G. White's guide book. Descend 1900m from Duffey Lake to the Okanagan (Lytton) over 50 km and 5 days.
One of the last un-logged valley wilderness areas in southern BC.
Cottonwood creek is reported brushy, and the trail is only maintained from Cottonwood junction to Lytton, so expect lots of deadfall to scramble over. 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.
Some group equipment for bush-wacking on some parts of the trail.
|How to Get There:|
|Event Directions:||Setup cars in Lytton and Duffey, so early start or leave the night before. At the end we make the drive from Lytton to Vancouver via Pemberton. A few extra hours setting up to cover a lot of variety in 5 days.|
