The Gray Creek Pass has reopened after the back country forest fire closures, combined with a bridge replacement project that occurred between September 2 and 29. With this new improvement, all nine bridges are now solid cement. Precast concrete sections for this bridge were supplied by Rapid – Span Precast Ltd of Armstrong BC.

The Pass is a seasonal route, usually open between July 1 and mid to late October, depending on early snowfalls at the 6800 foot summit. Unlike most forest roads, it has signs, cement curbing and a recreation site at Oliver Lake. Although the lake is not visible from the road, it is well worth taking ten minutes to walk through some 400 year old larches to this tiny alpine gem.
