Nelson-Salmo Trail (Mountain Station)

Directions from Nearest Address

From Baker Street, go up the hill on Josepine. Make a left on Gore and take it all the way. Park at the parking lot at the end of Gore. The trail runs right through the parking lot. Walk East with the lake on your left for about 15-20 minutes until you see a massive rock wheel. The creek from the spring runs behind the rock wheel, slightly to the left. There are 2 trails that you can take up. One of them is really close to the right of the wheel and the other is to the left, a bit further down. Walk up either trail for a few minutes and you are there. The trail to the left would be easier if its your first time. The trail on the right of the wheel spits away from a mountain bike trail (to the left) shortly after you start walking up.

    There are many large stone circles on the Rail Trail – look also for the old logging road ascending on the right of the stone circle. The spring drainage comes down to the left of the stone circle, and the source is easily reached by following it up into the trees.

    Another way you can get to this spring is to follow Elwyn street uphill all the way until it meets up with Svoboda road. There is a parking lot for the Rail Trail here, and if you follow the trail with the lake on your right hand side, you reach the spring in about the same amount of time as walking from the Gore street parking lot.

    I’ve visited a few times so far in Oct./Nov. the water tastes great! Flow rate was higher on wet days than dry.

    Has anyone been to this spring lately? I was looking for it today but couldn’t find it.

    Flowing nicely today. Kootenay-style someone left a stainless steel cup for others to use 🙂 Follow the little red bird in the tree at eye level to know where to leave the rail trail. Much of the snow is gone!!
