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

We did the Deeks Lake on July 08. This is part of the Howe Sound Crest Trail. The trail head is at the Porteau Cove Road parking lot. This is a moderate to strenuous hike, with elevation gain 980m in 6.7km, it will take you approx. 3 hrs to Deeks Lake. Trail condition is good and no snow all the way to the floating logs beach. We aimed to go on to Burnswick Lake but have to return at 1180m, there were 2 steep patch of snow which we find difficult to get through without a pair of crampons or micro spikes. Lots of bugs and mosquito, don't forget to bring your insect repellent. Excellent hike on a hot & sunny day !
