A nice network of old roads suitable for riding and skiing on the hills just above Telkwa. The highest point is reached via the TV tower road to a great viewpoint.

After 4km on the McDowell track turn left and steep uphill to reach the tower in 2km. The next junction to the right off McDowell track leads you to McDowell lake area and to the Howson Tea house and hut. Further routes are around the lake, Sawmill trail, Clearcut loop and the Trapline trail which reaches the Babine Lake road at the far end.

Directions:

From highway 16 just before Telkwa, head right on Tyhee lake road and turn right on Hislop Road. Follow this to Van Horne road and park near this junction near a trail sign on a tree a 100 m away. This is about a 12km drive from Telkwa or about 20km from Smithers. The trail network starts here, on old logging and mining roads and a TV tower road.
