Route Description for Alder Trail Hike
Don’t be discouraged by the name, the Alder Trail is a great short walk in the Bragg Creek area. The trail itself is roughly 800 m; however, the safest way to access it is from the parking area across the road. There is a small trail from the parking area that will take hikers 400m to the beginning of the loop, creating a lollipop. Hikers might be tempted to park along the road where the access trail crosses, but this is not recommended. The pleasant trail is equipped with interpretative signs that are a great way to learn about the area.
