Drive to Webbwood, Ontario just west of Sudbury.

Turn north on Agnew Lake Road at the west end of Webwood. Set your car’s odometer to 0 at the corner.

At 6 km turn left (follow the sign for black bear camp) onto west branch road.

At 46.5 km, turn right (east) on a major road. This is Charcoal Road.

At 67 km turn left and follow the level forest road for not quite 2km to the second "driveway" on the right and take it 500m down to Rushbrook Lake.
