I will be heading up to the loops for sep long weekend. I'll be doing some biking up harper and lolo on one of the days. was wondering 2 things.

- where is a nice lake to go to (not paul lake... got the itch last year) to go swimming and maybe some easy wheeling as I will be in the wifes 05 double cab tacoma.

- here and how if it is possible do I go to drive up the hillside towards batchelor lake, grasslands provincial park, lac du bois. I have seen vehicle lights up there when there are fireworks for Canada day or BC days.

paul lake is fine just dont swim in the crappy swimming area. if you know where the boat launch is, theres a trail that goes along the lake towards the bluff, follow that and at the end either slide down the rock pile and swim or go along the rock wall where there a dead tree stump and it will slowly make its way down to the water, you do abit of diving off there as well or swim to your right and theres a spot were all the loose small rock falls, like a small beach, water is super clean and warmer in that area, no duck itch.


and for batch just head out like you are going to westside, theres a retarded 3 or 4 lane at the lights and just follow it up the hill and you will see the welcome to lac du bois and a map, a little farther you'll see the dirt spot where everyone parks for dirtbiking, then the trail just heads straight up and enjoy.

im not the best at giving directions haha

was on the side where you can turn up to harper as well. on the map, I do see a road that will take you around the other side kinda between lake and lolo. probably past the bluff you are talking about
