LAKE STATS
Headwaters lake #2 has an elevation of 1,300 meters or 4,100' level. The surface area of Headwaters lake #2 is 19 ha, or 47 surface acres. Headwaters lake has a perimeter of 3.4 kilometers or 2.11 miles Buyers should confirm these stats if they are important to them.
Headwaters lakes are located just north of Peachland via the old Princeton Hwy. At approx. Km 21 you will come to the turn into Lake #1, which is a small fishing resort. Continue on straight for 1/2 km and you will come to the driveway on your left. If you are coming from Merritt towards Kelowna about 30 minutes you can exit the Sunset Main exit for the Hatheume lake resort on the Pennask summit.
Follow the Hatheume lake signs for approx. 7km and you will come to the under pass for the Connector Freeway. DO NOT GO UNDER THE FREEWAY. You will make a sharp right turn here and follow the forest service road in the other direction for approx. 8 km where you will come to a junction in the road. Continue straight on from here for approx. 1/2 km and on your right you will see the driveway to the cabin for sale.
I am not sure if this alternate route is maintained through the winter months, so access may be very limited using this route unless active logging is taking place in the area. This route will cut approx. 1 hour driving time off your trip coming in from this direction versus going down into Westbank and over to Peachland and back up to Headwaters lakes.
DRIVING TIME FROM
I found the gravel road was rough in places with wash board on my trip to the lake on sept. 8, 2018. the logging company normally keeps the road in better shape, so hopefully they will be grading it soon.
