Start up Blue Jay Creek as you would expect. Then the trail starts climbing the hillside and ridges. After traversing MacDonald Creek and cresting the ridge at Ten Mile Ridge Trail #157, you can head west and down to Ten Mile Creek, or east to Wapiti Creek Trail #160 or continue into the wilderness on Ten Mile Ridge Trail #157.
