This is the best way to bike to the falls. Whereas the trail from the Jasper side is an old fire road from Rock Lake it is singletrack with technical, root gardens, rock gardens and open medows with wonderful views all around. Plus at km 19.3, the Willow Creek Warden Station is there where patrols still stay.

Directions:

From Hinton head west to the Highway 40 turn, take a right then follow till the Rock Lake turn, turn left then on gravel road about 35 km to Rock Lake. Then proceed to the Wildhay Staging area. Then take the Wildhay trail for 1.7 km take a left - sign is posted then on your way to Snake Indian Falls.

Comment This is such an awsome trail but would be nice to see parks put some gravel in the horse rut sections and maintain this trail.
I think alot of people turn this trail down because they hear it is too rugged.
Took us 12 hrs to do the trail but we stoped quite a bit to enjoy the views and take brakes as it was really hot.

Encountered only a pair of riders along the 25 km there, and three on the way back. Downside After the branch away from the Celestine Lake trail, this trail is entirely in forest with only occasional views of the Snake Indian River, and of course the falls. Comment We did this trail on bike from the Jasper side, and stayed at the Seldom Inn campground, about 1.5 km before the falls. With the exception of a creek crossing, the ride is fast and smooth along a double track road. We did this during the July long weekend, just prior to the Celestine Road closure. The campground's name is well deserved as were surprised to find foot tall grass in the entire campground without a trace of any recent human impact. Though there's nothing much to do in this forest locked camp, we were very happy just to have found silence and isolation in day accessible camp on a long weekend.
