Directions to trail head
Hazards on trail
I was surprised how much I liked this hike. I usually find that hikes that are near group camping areas are a little disappointing. This hike starts out rolling along the creek and then opens up into a meadow with a good view of the surrounding mountains. Once you cross highway 68 at waypoint #93 you begin a gradual climb parallel to the highway. The maximum height is about 70 metres above the highway at waypoint #96 with a nice view of PineTop Hill. From waypoint #96 it is a gradual downhill to the highway at waypoint #98. Most of the hike is sheltered and there are a few nice spots for a lunch along the trail including the picnic and group camping areas.
