Open all year. Snowshoe trail in winter.
This is a great trail to run on but you have to watch out for roots and rocks.
The trail is part of the South Star X-Country ski trail system. From the parking lot, head through the gate and up the forest road. The trail starts on the right about 50 feet before the trail map sign. Follow the orange triangle trail markers on the trees.
The trail heads towards the power line, crosses the powerline, and enters the forest on the other side of it. The trail meanders south through the forest. At about 4 km, the trail heads up a steep hill. If you look back as you climb the hill, you'll get a beautiful view of Baker Mountain and Cranbrook Mountain.
Continue up the hill, and the trail levels out and crosses through a meadows and young forest. At about 6 km, you'll descend a steep hill. Continue to follow the trail, and it will eventually lead you back to the powerline. Head east on the power line until you see the orange triangle trail marker on your left marking the route back to the trailhead.
Flora & Fauna
Possible to see black bears in the spring and fall. White tail deer frequent the forest.
