The trail starts at the old logging deck car parking. You will walk under a old growth Hemlock and Balsam tree forest for 2 hours with an average slope of 5 degrees. You will get to a subalpine pine forest and see on your left a trail for the first camping area with a pic-nic table before the creek.

You will hit three avalanche areas ( No avalanche in summer and fall time ). At the second avalanche area you will see the first blue lake ( Awesome view ). If you continue on the trail ahead, you will hit Upper Blue Lake with 3 camping sites and picnic tables.

At Upper Blue Lake (one of the most beautiful blue lake in BC ), you can follow the creek for going to the glacier. At the glacier you can turn right and hit one of the peaks of the Roche Deboule Range.

And if you want do a real adventure, you can reach the Station Creek trail the other side of Roche Deboule Mountain, but a guide is necessary if you don't know this mountain.

You can reference the Station Creek trail which is also on trailpeak. For more photos of this trail see my Google Earth photo :
