This trail provides access to the north face / north ridge of Downie Peak in the Northern Selkirks. This trail, cut through dense bush and alder is on the west back of the creek draining the northern flanks of Downie Peak.
The trail is well cut (all windfall cut), being upwards of 6m wide through sections of alder and is marked with pink survey flagging. In some spots the trail has a well developed tread due to useage by animals (moose, cariboo & bears).
From Revelstoke, drive 90km north on Hwy 23N to Goldstream Forest Service Road. Drive up the Goldstream FSR to km 23.8 and a short spur road on the right. If you cross the creek, you have driven too far.
The short spur road is a bit bushy but in good shape. Drive up the spur road for about 0.7km and park (easy turn around). The trail traverses across a cut block (pink flagging) towards the creek. Once in the vicinity of the creek, follow the obvious trail as it climbs up the valley towards Downie Peak.
