One of the favorite back-country outings by one of our local Nordic grooming professionals is to head up the Pacific Creek Road and then cut over to Two Ocean Lake. This is the same trail beginning as for 2 Oceans lake to Emma Matilda ( see this trail), however, once you have skied out to the far eastern tip of 2 Oceans Lake, you then head east across the willows and meadows to connect with Pacific Creek.

The connection between the two roads is quite flat and if skied in ( i.e. a skier track in place), easy to do. It does not get a lot of traffic so sometimes you will have to break trail. Overall elevation gain is around 460 feet over 6.8 miles. We rank this as 'Intermediate" since you may need to break trail and the track is skier tracked.

"It is hard to beat for wilderness cruising".
