This a well built trail that starts behind the bottom of the Tee bar. The trail is around a metre wide and has good drainage and doesn't get muddy after it rains. This trail is mainly in the trees so your in the shade most of the day. The trail climbs steady with a few bridge crossing and switchbacks. It comes out of the trees with a short section on the west run and then back into the tree. The next sections climbs more steeply and comes back onto the west run where it joins up with Sunrise and Sunset east trails

Access Info

Drive 1 km east of Salmo on Highway 3, turn right on Ski Hill Road. Starts behind the bottom of the tee bar.
