This trail is fairly well-defined and easy to follow after some initial confusing parts. The trail leads up to Mt Mye plateau which is a very large area above treeline, with some wonderful blueberry patches on the tundra.

Continue across the tundra to the north-east to a ridge top after 2-3 km will get you to a great viewpoint above a sizable alpine lake. Numerous ridges and peaks can be reached from here.

If doing a multi-day trip, then camp near the lake for good water supply. Can continue to the true summit of Mt Mye and after the traverse descend on a direct trail leading back towards Faro. You will need to arrange a drive back to pickup the vehicle at the other end. Guided backpack trips of this traverse can be arranged with Nature Friends outfitters and B&B.

Directions:

Follow Mine road for 16 km north of Faro. Park on the side of the road near the narrow ATV trail heading uphill to the right. Go up this trail and after a couple of minutes you will come to a wide mining haul road, which you have to cross.

Now pick your way down over large boulders and come to an old road to the left. This will be followed for about 2 km and then turn right on to another old road, just before some oil drums and other mining junk.

After walking about 3 km here you will come to a streambed where you may notice an old bridge in the bush to your left. The bridge has fallen down and is overgrown now. Cross the creek here and continue uphill the next several kms.
