**If you get to the Limonite Creek Bridge at 53km of the Copper River Logging road, turnaround and take your first left to get onto the Telkwa Pass Trail**

This trail changes regularly. There have been companies that have cleaned this pass up a few times, cleared rocks and slides, created creek crossings, widened areas and made it very smooth and easy to travel, but it only takes a big rainfall and or snow/glaciers melting quickly to create rivers which wash parts of the road away and create new slides. I'd suggest checking with Groups like "Telkwa Pass Info Sharing Group" on Facebook for more up to date conditions.
The trail being widened has made it much easier for pickups to get through this pass.
Along the way you will see many waterfalls coming off Redemption Peak as well the glaciers that sit on top of it, also Blue, Top and Tauw Lake which are a very nice greenish blue colour.
There is a campsite called "Blue Lake Campsite at Top Lake as well.
It is 41km from Telkwa to the East end of the pass
It is 52.5km from Terrace to the west end of the pass

This can be crossed with a quad, but to make it crossable for a truck will take a lot of shoveling and boulder moving.

    Not usually no Kevin, I have been able to drive through the entire way as early as May. Today you can drive through no problem with anything 4x4, good tires and clearance.

You can or this trail
