This hike and the area around it have recently been included in the new Chilliwack Lake Provincial Park. It takes you into high wilderness country just north of the Canada–United States border and south of the Chilliwack River not far from where it exits Chilliwack Lake. The lake’s immediate surroundings are park-like, and there is an old British Columbia Forest Service cabin at the lake. It is now, however, in very poor condition. A trail leads from Radium Lake to the col between Mount Webb and Macdonald Peak, and ascents of the peaks are usually done by this route.

The trailhead has moved for the Paulson Rd and the bridge removed. Drive to the campground about 2k further up the road. This adds about 3 miles to the hike whiche we did in 6 hours. If you are looking for views, this is very disappointing. The highpoint is the suspension bridge about 1.5 hours into the hike. The lake is disappointing. This is about a 7 as a workout, but only a 4 as an enjoyable hike.
