This trail penetrates deep into the wilderness and offers great hiking and biking. Elevation gain: 770m.

Hike or ride up the main road. There will be two creek crossings before you come to a road on your left that leads to some old buildings. Stay on the main road.

Keep climbing steadily for the next 3km. At about 7km the road forks at an old mining camp. To begin the 8km loop take the road on the right to gain access to the top of the ridge.

This section of the trail is unsuitable for bikes. The road follows a very straight line as it ascends the mountain. After the road begins to wind to the left, keep a close lookout for a small undefined trail on the left that ascends up and out of the low brush. This trail continues along the ridge, then loops back down to Morrison Creek to eventually meet up with the mining camp once again.

Directions:

Drive south along the S Klondike Hwy for 17.3km and turn right onto Annie Lake Rd. Drive another 17.5km where you will find a wetland. The north end of Annie Lake will be on your left. Continue a little further up the road just past the 18km marker there is a road on your right. Park here. This is the trail head.
