Part of the Trans Canada Trail, as it crosses Montane. Double wide, beautifully finished. Very easy going in either direction with a few well-built switch backs as it approaches the old River Road heading away from town.

Access Info

At the junction of St Margaret's Road and Coal Creek Road really obvious trailhead. You can also jump onto it on the right if you cross the bridge at the junction of River Road and Coal Creek Road, heading away from town. Lots of signposts under construction.
