The former BC Winter Games Trails and various tracks in the High Country forest of the Bush Lake area provides a number of good snowshoe routes in winter. Although there are some known routes that snowshoers stomp in, there are often some surprises too so we venture out with a route in mind but we adapt to what we find. If a section has not been stomped in (the far south end had no tracks), we may want to follow a new route. After a summer of logging in the area new double tracks may be an option as it was in the this case. We chose to follow a track we have done many times but when we saw that farther progress southwest would require breaking trail through a cutblock, we opted to loop back on a new resource track for a total of 4,5 km.
One of our two groups we snowshoed with chose to snowshoe the Bush Lake North Loop too for a total of 8.5 km.

- Parking (N50° 32.136′ W 120° 26.996′ ) for the Bush Lakes Trails is the same as for Dogwood Marshes. The parking area is on the left 1.3 km before the McConnell Lake turn-off (2.9 km past the Goose Lake Road). Cross the road and go through the fenceline opening and follow established tracks.
