Rating: ? stars.
Use: Hiking, Biking if cleared.
Difficulty: Difficult (due to the state of the trail and the mandatory river crossing).
Distance: 30 km return from the highway to the mine along the old road or 10 km return skipping the road along LaForme Creek and starting at the river crossing.
Description: Another old mining road (1950-1960) that is probably way too far gone to actually use. There is also a road that continues beyond the mine into the alpine to the west. Check it out and let me know. This is one of those trails that would be super cool to bike if enough money and time were spent clearing it out.
Directions: Drive north of Revelstoke on Highway 23 to the start of the La Forme FSR. Drive 1.5 km on the LaForme FSR and pick up the old road or drive for approx 6 km on the La Forme FSR, bushwhack a short distance down to the river, navigate a river crossing and pick up the faint old mining road. Sound like fun?
