  • Site Description: The Porcupine Creek trails are scenic hiking and horseback riding trails that lead to the fabulous Porcupine Creek Canyon. There are two trail options. A shorter trail begins from a small rustic campsite, while a longer trail begins a little further up the road. The longer trail should take about 3 hours to hike. Along the way, visitors can expect to discover beautiful wildflowers, gorgeous alpine landscapes, prominent limestone bluffs and formations, and a variety of wildlife, which could include migrating bighorn sheep if they're lucky. The trails lead to the Marble Range Provincial Park, so users should familiarize themselves with any rules or conditions for travelling inside the Park. Visit http://www.env.gov.bc.ca/bcparks/explore/parkpgs/marble_ran/ for more information.

  • Driving Directions: From Clinton, head southwest on Kelly Lake Road towards Kelly Lake. Travel approximately 16 km and turn right/north onto the Jesmond Road. Travel 5.3 km and turn right onto the access road. From here, the road is narrow and four wheel drive is recommended, although not often necessary. Continue approximately 5 km to the first trailhead, where there is a small campsite with an outhouse and a log corral. The second and longer trail is about 700 meters further up the road from the campsite.
