Wood Lot

This hiking/biking trail is a 9.0 km loop with a bit of paved road travel and 300 meters of elevation change. From Crawford Bay park travel up a very steep Peters Road 3kms where you will turn right on the North Spur road. The gravel forestry service road flattens out a bit and you travel another 600 meters to a fork in the road, stay left and travel another 800 meters up to the next junction. Go straight at the "height of land" sign and travel up another 1.3 kms to the trailhead. Turn right and head north up the Will Fraser trail #2 on the main map. It's a great single track with a series of ups and downs. After 1.1 kms and a short hike a bike you will get to a viewpoint where you can see the North Kootenay Lake and beyond. From there it's downhill all the way to another junction where you start the Woodlot trail going east, trail #1 on the main map. More downhill but very technical rock and root sections, a quick descent for 1.5 kms and you are back out on Peters Road.
The loop takes about 1.5 hours depending on how long it takes you to get up Peters Road. It's a moderate to hard trail with lot's of pedalling and very challenging when wet.
