Short interpretive walks, with very little elevation gain. The Creek trail is 1km and the Pine trail loop is about 3kms.
The shorter loop trail is in good shape, but the longer trail has some overgrown sections, deadfall and a washed out bridge. There is also some logging in the area, with new muddy roads and confusing open cutblocks.
The Spittal Creek Interpretive Forest lies within the Rocky Mountain Trench region of BC. At Spittal Creek the trench is about 3km wide, relatively flat floored and steep walled. A walk along this route will provide evidence of celluvial and fluvial deposits characteristic of a mountain stream.
Parking area is 7km west of Tete Jaune on the right side of the highway 16, marked by a blue hiking sign and there is a small parking lot here with maps of the trail. Another logging road goes left past the parking area, and one of the trails connect to this road on the way out.
