Lois Creek Trails
The Lois Creek Trails are adjacent to the townsite subdivision with trail heads at the north end of Trail Street; at 8th Avenue where it intersects with Elko Street; and past Centennial Hall at the old Legion Track. There is plenty of parking at Centennial Hall.
The Lois Creek Trails offers a variety of trail experiences. Trails are a mixture of double track and single track that weave through mature forest, rock outcroppings, and often alongside Lois Creek. The trails are generally beginner to intermediate with a few technical single track trails that contain some roots and loose rocks. Not only are the trails popular for biking and hiking in the non-snow months, they are also a local favorite for cross country skiing & snowshoeing in winter.

Lois Creek Trail Highlight
Tea Spot - easy to intermediate, inner loop 9.2km
Trail Head: 8th Avenue and Elko street
Follow the trail taking the left fork at the top of the hill and continue on Lois Creek Trail. Take the right up the hill to 401, passing the Swamp Trail on the Left and the “Chute” on the right. You will come to a logging road, cross it and continue across a few metres left. The trail meanders through a larch and pine forest for a km to a wooden shelter and picnic table known locally as the Tea Spot.
The Tea Spot is mid-point of the trail and a great place to have a rest, and enjoy the view of Mt. Fisher. Bring your map as there are lots of alternate routes that you may wish to consider along the way.
