How to get to oliphant lake

Finally getting around to doing some off-roading in my 75 Ramcharger. I'm in the Shawnigan area so started to explore around here a bit. Went out yesterday trying to find a trail that gets you to oliphant lake, there is a post on here that says you enter behind serious coffee in mill bay, I looked everywhere and could not find the entrance. Tried up by spectacle lake as well, no luck. I know there must be a way because some dirt bikers told me that they had seen vehicles there just two days ago. Just wondering if someone could give me exact directions . Also any other suggestions for the Shawnigan area would be appreciated.

I found the entrance on the spectacle lake side about a year ago but the gate bypass was way too gnarly for my stockish ranger.

I can't really explain how to get there but you go past the lake and some ghetto trailer parks and you will come to a dead end with a gate. The gate bypass is to the left.

Thanks Jonathan, I think I was at that gate yesterday, I'll have a better look to see if I can get around it.

This was written by some else 3 weeks ago on another site.[get out there & enjoy it while you can, housing development is starting soon and conservation officers will no longer allow public access for the most part, always pack out your trash & be respectful to the wildlife/environment.]
I find if you use an updated satellite map you can quite often spot places where you can get into the area.
