Definitely a lot slower than driving the truck up there but on the other hand, you can get through some unbelievably tiny mountain-goat trails!
Wild Deer is much easier to get into, it looks like people have camped there. But I haven't been there this year yet. If you look at our picture #4 above, you can see how open it is there.
You enter on Waters Rd. in Duncan, at the Island Timberlands yard/gate. You have to sign in and out so that they know no one is lost out there. There are lots of places to get firewood there so there's quite a bit of traffic on the main road (and logging trucks sometimes of course). There were 4 trucks at Lois Lake, guys out fishing in their little pontoon boats, but there was no one at Wild Deer so that's where we sat and had our tea and cookies (we're old farts). The roads were all really good, we only used 4x4 while we were climbing.
We'd love one - here in Duncan!
What a great site. Can't wait to try out some of those routes. We got a little Pajero last year and are hoping to get out there with it soon. There are lots of places to see right around us here in Glenora.
