Trail Description:

Detailed Trail Information:

At Sicamous on Hwy 1, just east of the Hwy 97A junction, turn north onto the Solsqua-Sicamous Rd. Cross the bridge and the railroad tracks, and at 1.4 km turn left up the #1800 Forest Service Rd. Take the #1800 Forest Service Rd, to the start of the Simm Creek Trail, at approx 14 km, where there is a directional sign. Go approx 7 km, and then take the road joining on the right, for approx 1.6 km, to an old logging landing. Follow the directional arrow to the right to an old rough trail (the sign and trail are not obvious). Take this trail for approx 1 km, until it connects to an old logging road at the clear cut. Follow this road for approx 11 km, until it joins the #1800 Forest Service Rd near the bottom. An alternate but longer route, (approx 55 km) is to take the Simm Creek Trail, all the way to Malakwa, and then follow Hwy 1 back to Sicamous.
