The trail into Maloney Lake starts at the end of a small road in the middle of a cutblock. This trail is not signed and has not been maintained for some time. Look for orange markers on trees that mark the trail as it skirts the bottom of the cutblock and proceeds south. As the little-used trail nears the campsite on the south side of the lake it joins a road leading from a cutblock into the site. The campsite itself is located in a small grassy opening in the trees. Maloney Lake is small, muddy, and shallow. The shores are so marshy it is difficult to approach open water easily. However, the lake offers good trout fishing if you persevere.

From the junction of highways 3 and 33 in Rock Creek, turn north onto Highway 33. Follow this highway for 50.8 km to the junction with the Beaver Creek Road located just north of the town of Beaverdell. Turn right onto this road and follow it for 24.6 km to the junction with the State FSR. Turn left onto State FSR, and continue for 3.5 km to the junction with Lassie FSR. Stay left at this junction and proceed for another 1.9 km to a junction with a small road on the left across from Cup Lake. This is the access road into Maloney Lake, and it is narrow and has frequent waterbars. If you don't have a high-clearance vehicle, you probably shouldn't attempt to drive this road. Turn left up this road and proceed for another 2.8 km to the trailhead. To find the Clark Lake trailhead, proceed north on Lassie FSR another 3.3 km past the turnoff to Maloney Lake (a total of 5.2 km up Lassie FSR). Look for a small parking area and a brown 4 x 4 post marking the trailhead on the left just past the Lassie Lake campsite turnoff.
