Long Description:
From this point one may head north on the 8.1 km. Lemon Creek > Slocan section or south on the 12 km Winlaw > Lemon Creek section of the trail. Parking is available at the trailhead and there are outhouses stationed strategically along the trail, usually at each trailhead.

Each section trailhead has signage relating a bit of the history of the rail trail and the local area.

In the winter this rail trail becomes a cross country ski and snowshoe trail, with biweekly Grooming taking place on the trail.

The historic old Lemon Creek Railroad Bridge is about a half mile north up the trail from here.

Winding gently through one of the most beatiful river valleys in British Columbia, the Slocan Valley Rail Trail offers easy access to 50 km of breath taking scenery. Following the contours of the Slocan River, the trail makes its way from Slocan Lake in the North, towards the Kootenay River in the South. From the beaches that line its path, to prisitine wildlife santuaries, world-class fishing, white water rafting, and some of the most quaint cafe's in BC, the trail is extensively used by both locals and people from all over the world. The trail brings your close to both mixed forests, meadows, wetlands, river shoreline and rocky escarpments, and all the amenities our valley has to offer.
