Easy level trail follows the old, historic highway for approx. 6 km, until it meets the existing Hwy 1. Cool shade, excellent views of Shuswap Lake, wildflowers, and birds. Access from either end requires a short ride on the shoulder of the TCH.

Access Info

From the Sicamous Visitor Centre and Wharf parking lot, travel west on Hwy 1 across the pedestrian walk on the north side of the Narrows bridge. Proceed approx 600 meters, and turn onto the Old Sicamous Hwy Rd. The paved road eventually turns to dirt and traverses through the forest above the CP Rail line, and Shuswap Lake. At approx 3.6 km, find a trail sign where the road turns into a hike/bike trail. NOTE: there is very little room for parking at this point. This trail continues along the old hwy. bed for another approx 3 km, with several lovely viewpoints to stop and admire the lake. The trail ends where it meets with Hwy 1. Return the way you came or proceed on the wide shoulder of the TCH
to a parking area at the bottom of 112 FSR (approx 1km downhill).
