Regarding trail Slocan-Kootenay Lookout near Nelson, BC

http://www.trailpeak.com/trail-Slocan-Kootenay-Lookout-near-Nelson-BC-11440

Where exactly do you start this trail? I live about 1km from the Crescent Valley bridge on Pass Creek road and I can't think of any red flagging tape down the road from me or any sort of trail? But perhaps I missed it? Any assistance is appreciated. Cheers

The location in Google Street View is as follows; hard to see the trail and there is no flagging in this older Street View image.

I have also pinned the approximate location in Google Maps.

There is no trail head sign as it is not an official trail. If you are heading from Crescent Valley, it is after the auto wrecker and about 200 m before the Pass Creek bridge. Pass Creek parallels the road on your right in this location. I did the trail last about a month ago. It was still well flagged then but it was hard to see the actual path in places due to ground vegetation. The trail does not get used much but the view is great.

Let me know if you still can't find it. I live in the area and might be able to show you.
