This cache is accessible from several directions, and can even be reached by paddling across Williams Lake. No bushwhacking is required; the cache site is visible from a trail. The path recommended below is rocky and not recommended for smaller children, bikes or as a night cache. If you take the scenic route suggested, you can be in and out in less than 50 minutes.
Start at the end of Theakston Avenue. Walk into the woods about 80 m to cross the small ravine. This area is near the head of McIntosh Run. (This urban river system drains Southeast to Herring Cove.) Find a trail heading East and in about 10 minutes you will encounter Colpitt Lake. Head North along the shore trail. A 5 minute walk gets you to a bridge which crosses the outlet of Colpitt Lake. Follow the trail for another ten minutes as it meanders alongside the stream to Williams Lake.
For a great view of Williams Lake, mountain goats can climb the rocks.
The area is networked with trails and if you are not careful on your trip back you may end up elsewhere from your starting point!
The area between Theakston and Colpitt Lake is now under development.
