  • Driving Directions:Main Access: Commencing at the junction of Hwy 3/95 and Hwy 95A in Cranbrook, follow Hwy 95A for 23.4 km to the north end of Marysville. Take a sharp left (south) onto the St. Mary Lake Road. Set your odometer at �0�. Follow this road for 16 km to the junction with the St. Mary River Road. Turn left, onto the St. Mary River Road and cross over the bridge. Within 0.6 km, cross a cattleguard and turn right onto the Hellroaring Creek Forest Service Road. Follow this road for 1 km, then turn right onto the Meachen Creek Forest Service Road. Reset your odometer to �0�. Follow this good, 2 wheel drive, gravel road for 13.8 km, then turn left onto the Fiddler Creek Road. Follow this rough 2 wheel drive road for 1.2 km to the Evans Creek trailhead sign on the left hand side of the road. Park in the wide part of the road, just beyond the trailhead sign. This section of the original Mallandaine Mine trail begins 0.4 km along the Mt. Evans trail, and is for history buffs willing to do a bit of route finding. At the first switchback, continue straight ahead, along an overgrown tread. This part of the trail contours along the hillside passing through logged areas. About 2 km along this section of the trail, remnants of the Good Hope Cabin and the Mallandaine Mine can be found. The trail then drops down to the 4 wheel drive road in the valley bottom, and continues along this road for about 1 km, before rejoining the Mallandaine Pass Trail. Note: There is another trailhead at 5.6 km on the Fiddler Creek Road. The last 2 km to this trailhead is 4 wheel drive only.
