This trail lies along Highway 11, the David Thompson Highway, at the Siffleur Falls day use area. This beginner trail provides out-and-back action and takes you a total of 28.7 miles. Originating at the Siffleur Falls parking lot, the trail begins in a most civilized manner. Wheeling along the wide access trail, you'll reach a suspension bridge at mile .35. tenderly make your way across he bridge, and, almost immediately, you'll see an overgrown road fork to the right. Follow this fine track and prepare to forget your brakes. On this fast trail, you'll make excellent time, while mountains like Wilson show their wintery, north-facing slopes. With a few route-finding tricks, this trail provides excellent beginner-level riding and is a must for those who prefer fire roads to singletrack.
