Drove to Lusk Creek Day use area just south of Hwy 40 on the Sibbald Creek road Hwy 68. The plan was to go up Horton Hill. We found that there is no visible trail from the parking area so we changed our plans and went across the Hwy to the interpretive trail that leads to the Baldy Pass. The weather was hot and we did not have time to go to the Pass so at the end of the interpretive trail and the Baldy Pass turn we headed back down the old logging road to make a 6 km loop.
