English Boulders Climbers Trail

Rating: 3 stars. (not for the trail but the scenic beauty of the spot)

Use: Bouldering area, hiking.

Difficulty: Easy.

Distance: 500 m.

Description: A recently developed spot for the bouldering crowd in Revelstoke. If you just want to get out of the house and have a short walk in the woods this is a pretty cool spot. The huge moss covered boulders amazing to see even if you aren’t much of a climber. Please stay on the established trails. It wouldn’t take much to totally trash this place and kill the moss. Be respectful. 

Directions: Drive west on Highway 1. Just before the Three Valley Gap Resort hand a left onto the Three Valley – Victor FSR. Follow this road past a couple of forks. Take the left fork onto Branch 100. This road will lead you into the English Creek drainage. Park at the newly rebuilt bridge that crosses the Creek. Look for the trail on the west/downstream side of the bridge.

  1. Thank you SO much for allowing us to discover this amazing mossy world! We’re a hiking family of 5 (youngest is 8) and we all loved it. One of our favorite trail ever. It’s relatively short but you can spend a lot of time exploring the boulders and the creek. September 2 2017 the road was in good condition but you do need a SUV or pickup with some minimal ground clearance. There are troughs across the road in several places.
