The Bluff Trail is a wide, multi-use trail, named for the stunning rock bluffs situated on it. The trail begins and ends at the west end of the parking lot at Km 1. It follows an existing skid road to a junction that climbs through a mixed forest of pine, cedar and fir before looping back. At the first junction, mountain bikers should take the right-hand branch, while horseback riders should continue on the left branch. Walkers and trail runners may complete the loop in either direction, but for a longer, gentler ascent, follow the right-hand branch at the junction. Many sections of the trail are beginner-friendly, but there is approximately 100m of elevation change through the middle section.

Two viewpoints are located on the trail. The lower viewpoint is approximately one kilometre from the parking lot on the left-hand branch at the junction. The top viewpoint is about halfway around the loop, just below the highest point of elevation. Watch for blueberries, huckleberries, thimbleberries, and fresh hoof prints.
