The route from Wardner towards Elko roughly follows the west shore of the the Kootenay River (Lake Koocanusa) on former forestry roads, heading south and eventually running parallel to Caven Creek Road and crossing Lake Koocanusa (Kikomun Newgate Road bridge) and entering Kikomun Creek Provincial Park and utilizing bits and pieces of a former rail grade. From Bayne's Lake, the trail is mainly forestry roads - some of which can be muddy - which begin to travel north, eventually reaching Highway 3 and the town of Elko.
