Easy to find the staging area.... On the left side of the highway heading from Golden to Revy. Close to the top of a big hill after the bridge... Well marked, look for the sign.

Google maps has it as 42 kms out of Golden

this may seem a little long but copy and paste it into your adress bar and should show you exactly where the staging area is, how far from golden, and you can zoom in quite nicely on the staging area itself.

http://maps.google.com/maps?f=d&saddr=HWY-1&daddr=golden+bc&hl=en&geocode=FbiXEQMdNJoB-Q%3B&mra=ls&sll=51.484804,-116.878052&sspn=1.518823,3.515625&ie=UTF8&ll=51.484724,-117.331281&spn=0.011866,0.027466&t=h&z=15

You may have to zoom out a bit to see it, marker A should be quartz staging and marker B is Golden

heard that the creek crossings on the trail are a little sketchy at best. can't hurt to try though.
