Christine lake map from east

Travel West on Hwy. 3 or 3B to 3, until you view Christina Lake as you round the corner on the hill with the view point.  Take the East Lake Drive turnoff by taking the turning lane (middle lane after the uphill passing lane ends)  at the bottom of  the hill.  Turn left off Hwy  3 into the half circle turn around.  Stop.  Wait for traffic to clear, cross over Hwy  3 to East Lake Drive.  Come down this hill to the “Y” Junction.  Take the “Y” to the left, this is Alpine Road.  159 Alpine is on your left just before the corner.

(when coming from the east google maps suggests taking McRae Road; instead it is better to continue on Hwy #3 until the East Lake Drive turn off, take the East Lake Drive turnoff onto East Lake Drive, continue down the hill to the ‘Y’ junction,take the left ‘Y’ at the bottom of the hill- this is Alpine Road.)
