      Access Info:
      Directions:
      Trailhead coordinates: UTM 387807/ 5441995 (hwy jctn)

      Travel 18 km west of Grand Forks on Hwy 3 and turn off on the Fisherman Creek road. There are several possible variations on riding this trail. A good one is to park at the highway pull off and pedal clockwise up the road past the B.C. Mine and on up to the Loop. Check out the awesome viewpoint on the loop and then ride the single track back to your vehicle or take the Needle Trail descent down into the valley below (requires a shuttle back to your vehicle).
