Lusk Pass connects Hwy 40 to the Powderface Trail, and is the route for the Trans Canada Trail.

Access Info

From Hwy 40, start up the Baldy Pass Climb and turn right onto the Lusk Pass route. There should be signs at the intersection, but many were moved when Baldy was clearcut several years ago. From the Dawson trailhead, the turn onto the trail is 7.4km south on Powderface Road, on the right.
