Please note trailhead marked on this map is the beginning of a forest road leading to the parking area. Continue down the road for approximately 1 mile / 1.6 km to find the parking area. The initial 500+ ft / 152+ meter ascent will be done while driving to the parking area. This is a moderate trail through mossy old growth forest (except for the crossing of a recent cut block lower down) along the south wall of the Kuskanax River canyon between Nakusp and the Nakusp Hot Springs. Near the Hot Springs the trail crosses a covered wooden bridge with benches and views over the rushing river. Enjoy a Hot Spring at the beginning or end of your hike. It may be completed as an out and back walk, or one way with two vehicles or hitch hiking. Other bathers are usually happy to give a lift back into the village if you start at the bottom.

Lots of logs to climb over and under. I didn’t get far, as I found a few bears that were sending me a clear signal to gtfo. The few Km I did do were a lot of fun. I would try it again.

Great trail, I really enjoyed this hike. It was so beautiful in spite of rainy weather, and the trail itself absorbed the water so there weren’t a lot of muddy or slippery areas other than a few roots or rocks. I had my dog with me as well and the forest floor of the trail was easy on his paws. Getting to the trailhead from Alexander road was a bit confusing so if you start from there and work your way up to the hot springs you’ll want to turn right up the mountain road when you see Heppner Rd on the left off of Alexander Rd, there will be a sign or two to keep you on track until you get to an ambiguous sign that just says trail with an arrow that doesn’t definitively point right or left but you’ll want to turn left up the one way drive...yes it looks a bit sketchy but I promise you can turn around or park at the top close to the trailhead. I highly recommend this hike but like the signs say be bear and cougar aware. The trail is also only 8.5 km out, 17 if you go out and back.
