Standard Route up 5040    
I have made up a "Topo/Image Map", with the approx. location of the route up the Standard Route on 50-40 Peak The route has a 2hr bush wack then a 1 hr hike up alpine meadows to the summit. Gives good access to high ridges with excellent veiws.

Click - 'Red star' and veiw a photo that was taken from that location.

On the summit of 50-40 I placed 6 arrows pointing to different peaks in that direction

How to get there??     Drive west from Port Alberni for about 60kms. Turn left off Highway 4# onto Marion creek mainline. From here stay on the main logging road and drive for about 10kms up to the mainline then park on the left side between the two bridges. Walk up the deactivated road "Marion 80" for only about 50 meters before heading up into the timber. Enjoy my fellow Hiker.....Bushwacker.... I would love to hear any stories from around this area if any of you have any to share.
