About Monashees: Twin Lakes
This awesome alpine hike has a moderately challenging ascent that gains 500 meters over roughly 4 km. Pass through two open meadows before arriving at the pristine turquoise waters of Twin Lakes. Ideal for a backpacking camping experience for some serious solitude. To avoid snow, we suggest only doing this hike absolutely no earlier than the third week of July.
Take hwy #97 to Vernon, then go east on Hwy #6 from Vernon for 47 km, through Lumby to Cherryville. Turn north onto Sugar Lake Road and proceed 46 km until you reach the turnoff (km marker #22) to the park. Proceed on Spectrum Creek Road for 16 km to the park.
