Long Description:
To arrive at this trailhead one must follow Columbia Road south from Highway 3 directly south of the Castlegar Airport. The road is paved as far as a large gravel pit, then gravel for the final few km. One will eventually encounter a yellow gate and a small parking lot. The trailhead is immediately south of the gate.

Improvements have been made to the trail over the years, though it is noted that the trail is not recommended for cyclists in wet weather, due to slippery sections. There is a picnic area and washrooms 2 km. south of the trailhead, at the site of the old Champion Creek Doukhobor settlement, just north of the old, abandoned cemetery.

The trail is managed and maintained by the Castlegar Friends of Parks and Trails Society, whose website contains information on the many trails in the Castlegar area.
