  • Driving Directions: To get to the Spillimacheen River Hiking trail: Traveling from Hwy 95 at the community of Parson, turn onto Parson River Crossing for 1.7km. This road turns into Crestbrook Rd. Travel approximately 15km, when Crestbrook Rd ends and intersects the Spillimacheen FSR. Go right (northwest) on the Spillimacheen FSR for 39km. Take a logging road on the right. (This will keep you on the north side of the river. If you cross the river and start heading south, you missed the turn.) Follow this road for about 5km and you will arrive at the trail head. Hike 8.3km and the trail will fork. Take the right fork to Baird Brook cabin, or the left fork to Purcell Mountain Lodge.
