“A classic Fraser Valley trail.”— Kristen McGlynn
From here, the trail is an equally steady descent, winding through a section of forest that has seen a lot of clear cutting due to beetle kill. While not shaded, this section is still pretty as the recovering undergrowth is green and in years when the fireweed blooms, the wildflowers can be quite stunning.
The trail then twists and turns back down into the forest where you can spot columbines growing in the spring. From here, the trail flattens out for about a half mile, coming to an intersection with Flume and then ending after crossing St. Louis Creek on a wide bridge at the Creekside Trail.
