Lois Creek Trail Description

The Lois Creek Trail is a fun and easy way to spend some quality outdoor time in the Kimberley area and its extensive network of trails. Make sure to keep an eye out for other outdoor enthusiasts along the trail, and allow any bikers or trail runners to safely make their way around you. This route sets out from the trailhead and travels north through the forest alongside the waters of Lois Creek before meeting up with Kimberley Creek and following it south.
