Directions to trail head
While the hike starts only a couple of hundred meters from the Exshaw plant, after walking a couple of hundred meters you will forget that it exists.
You will walk 500 meters from where you park on some 4 x4 trails before turning north at waypoint # 02. From waypoint #02 it is 600 meters to the point where you cross Jura Creek and climb the hillside above the creek. From this point on there is a little route finding but you are either on the creek bed or following the trail along the creek bank. Waypoint #04 is an area where there is a series of little pools that have been eroded in the rock by the creek. From the pictures you will see that the spring melt has not hit yet. I think the creek would be impressive when it does.
