DIRECTIONS: Drive north from Vancouver on Sea to Sky highway. Near Porteau Cove, look for signs for the Deeks Lake Trail or Porteau Rd. Turn off highway at an overpass that leads to a parking lot (and nothing but a parking lot.) Trailhead starts in the lot at a signpost, but the rough road the trail follows for the first 3km or so is drivable with a 4WD or high-clearance vehicle with some power.create
SUMMARY: The Deek's Lake trail offers a good variety of terrain and intensity with views of Howe Sound. The first third of the trail is on a logging road. The other two thirds varies between steep and relatively low incline. The trail is generally well marked.create

Howe Sound Crest Trail from Porteau Road to Deeks Lake return.
Excellent snowshoe adventure. Took us 6.5 hours return; much longer than in the summer. It was a grind up with all the snow; took us 4 hours. We only saw 6 other people on the trail. No avalanche concerns. Off leash dog-friendly!
