This trail starts at sub-alpine at the south side of the highway at the Salmo Creston pass. The first part of the trail is a wide road and goes through Stag Leap Provincial Park. Once you reach the park boundary sign and huge boulders stopping vehicles from going farther you'll see the sign for the trail to Ripple Ridge. You can also continue straight from this point and reach a snow mobile cabin (approx. 2km). At the top of Ripple Ridge you have a 360 degree view of the area. There is also another trail on the north side of the highway which you can take to Cornice Ridge. Washrooms are available at the pass/rest area. Caribou are in the area and sheep can often be seen on the highway. Keep your eyes peeled.
