Quaite Creek To Jewell Pass Professional Review and Guide
"This is a popular trail with mountain bikers and youth groups headed for a backcountry campground not too far from civilization. For walkers Jewell Pass is a rather boring objective best combined with Prairie View trail (#36) to make a point to point. Not far beyond the gate the official trail joins in from the right. Head up the narrow valley, the logging road squashed between the creek and steep slopes dappled with slabs of white Palliser limestone that for the easily fooled look like snow. After 1.2 km the valley opens into a meadow (cutblock) where Jack Quaite had a sawmill for purposes of experimentation. Incredibly, the Federal Government’s Forest Experiment Station reached over Jewell Pass to this valley. The campground is located across the meadow in the trees."
