Boivin Creek Trail Description

Hiking along the Boivin Creek Trail is a great way to experience the skiing trails around Elkford, even when there isn’t any snow on the ground. The trail sets out from the Elkford Nordic Ski Clubs and heads southwest through the dense forests that populate the area around the creek. Along the route, you will make use of several bridge crossings and old, well-worn roads that make traversing the terrain a breeze. Eventually, you will reach the Boivin Hut, a warming cabin used by skiers in the winters. Take the path to the left here and follow it towards the rugged Profile Mountain. When you break out of the forest, turn back and make your way to the trailhead where you began your journey.
