So pretty easy to find. First 30-45 minutes, very well groomed trails, and spectacular scenery. Once you get to the abandoned camp equipment site, things change rapidly. Straight up, and the trail fades. We turned back at 660m as the descent is much harder than the climb. I would rate this climb as difficult once the angle of ascent turned almost 100% up. Also lots of mosquitoes.

I live in Hope so the trail was super easy to drive out to. There seams to be a few spin-off trails for “mnt bikes”, in which looked interesting! There was the main groomed trail or one the seams to go straight up. We took the trail going up wards and did a loop back onto the main trail! It was fun and there’s a waterfall at the top!

In all honesty, this isn't really worth the drive out. The trail basically comes to an end after a few hundred feet elevation. we pushed past the unmaintained trail and it just gets worst. We got up to an area where it opens up and it looked like someone pitched a tent and sorta left it. No real trail to follow after that and youd probly have to bushwack to the top. Cool little creek at least just passed the bike jumps.

The trail shown on this app does appear on open topo maps but it's over grown. As advised in the previous post we started the trail at the west side of the fire and rescue centre. It starts as a mountain bike trail with jumps and bridges. Trails split in several directions. We took the trail that traverses west to meet the trail shown in this app which is well maintained. Once we arrived at the main trail, it goes straight up steep terrain and hasn't seen traffic in years. We decided to turn around here.

Can not seem to locate the trailhead from gps location. Found it via parking at the end of the way station, cross the road near the overhead sign/stream. You will see a parking lot on the north side for fire and rescue. Look for a fence that runs perpendicular to the road. There is a bike wheel with "dog" on it. That is the trail head we found and used. N 49°23.315’,W 121°28.028’

Beautiful. Stunning views. Must go early in morning as highly popular trail. We did this Nov 5 and not enough snow for snowshoeing.
