Terrific, short trail. Paired with other trails in the area to build your own loop. Beautiful scenery, capped by an amazing, nearly 360 degree view of the valley and Kootenay River. Summit runs into the Smallwood Trail and has benches available for taking in the view. This trail brackets the steeper Smallwood Trail downhill section that's tailored more for biking. If on foot, you'll want to take Bigwood and bypass that section of the Smallwood Trail.

Awesome, fairly easy trail with great views. Connects with a series of other trails that serves as a sort of a build your own loop. Doesn't appear to be heavily used. Did see one other group, a really friendly couple with their child strapped to their back. This trail runs into Bigwood at the summit and has a couple benches to soak in the beautiful, near 360 degree views. The downhill portion of this trail is definitely tailored towards bikers. I'd recommend taking the Bigwood down. Definitely worth a visit.

Easy to walk trail. Good for all age. Not a loop, you finish at a different point.

very easy trail, the crashing river next you as you walk through these beautiful trees is utterly relaxing. The train cars covered in graffiti art gives a stunning abandoned feel.

beautiful trail, the lake is stunning with the mountain landscape. mountain biked this trail and it was tiring as lots of climbing throughout. on foot it's a breeze.

if you walk near the train tracks and get a view of the lake, the trip is amazing. however Parkhurst itself is at a point where there is only one building left standing. still a great place to see with a eery feel but not what was expected.

5.1 KM in 1 hour and 8 minutes; sitting here with sweat dripping down my face and back, awesome hike! It's very breezy in the forest and protects you from the sun nicely- would recommend bringing a jacket if you're planning to just enjoy the walk and not go too hard.

Tons of trails to choose from. We picked our own, zig-zagged from one to another. Some are steep with lots of rocks and logs, others are simply gravel road that go on for a kilometer or two.

I would definitely do this again. The forest is bright and clean smelling and full of birds. Great morning hike.

great hike but super crowded
