4x4 access at most mid trail access points Tulameen Access is limited right now due to high flow of Tulameen River.

There are numerous pickup points the way that can be seen at hopemountain.org/trails/hbc… remember forest service roads are often active logging roads.

Need to Know

Rivers are flowing heavily right now making this trail especially dangerous, by walking off the trail you are able to find safer river crossings.

Description

This is a technical trail, not for the faint of heart you'll have to cross rivers without bridges and will need to be prepared to stay in the backcountry for up to five days there are bear caches and pads at each camp sight but beyond that, the trail is minimally maintained. It is worth the hard work though there are numerous beautiful views, and it is an excellent trail for experienced runners to go on a through hike.

This run goes through various terrain from Mountain tops too beautiful valleys and meadows the trail is marked, but the marker can be difficult to find, portions of the trail are marked with red flagging tap saying "HBC Trail" and others are marked with kilometer markers stating the distance traveled.
