Length: 2km Loop

Trailhead: From Ganges, make your way toward the village of Vesuvius. The trail can be accessed from two locations; Broadwell or Sunset Drive. Watch for signs.

This fairly level trail is an easy walk for most ages.  A lovely meandering creek is languid and soothing to refresh visitors under the cool forest canopy of hot summer days. In fall, winter and spring water rushes over large boulders and small falls to create an exciting and noisy backdrop to invigorate all the senses.  Rest benches along the route allow for quiet contemplation. Do not disturb the creek bed as it is a salmon spawning stream around November.
