This historic trail was originally a First Nations path and later used as overland entry route for those avoiding the mining licensing costs and miners head tax during the Gold Rush. It then grew to be the main road to the US border for wagons in the late 1800’s. Now, you’d never guess it was so widely used, as it’s currently a quiet walk through a wooded area that leads to the Nicomekl River.
