near Harrison Hot Springs, British Columbia (Canada)

The track starts along the prominade at the town of Harrision Hot Springs. It follows a lakeshore service road towards the west, crossing the Miami River outlet of Harrison Lake, and on to one of the sources of the hot springs. The accessible road ends at a gate, where a small trail goes west (uphill) into the forest. The forest trail is sometimes steep and rocky, skirting several large steep sided rock outcrops, and elsewhere is level and runs approx. 60m above lake level. There might not be any others on the forest segments, so although close to town, treat it as a bit of a wilderness hike. A large elk hoof print seen in mud on trail. The trail extends to the point where Harrison River meets Harrison Lake, and passes a beautiful secluded sandy beach.
