The Geoheritage Trailhead

Even with the map on hand, and the signage, it’s confusing to follow the trails. There are multiple footpaths and the way is not well marked and with be multiple dead-end spurs.

Should anyone get turned around, keep the sound of the raging river to your right and behind you, and the trails will lead you back to the CPR railbed that runs parallel to the water, out to the trailhead.
