The drive along Douglas Lake Road provides incredible views of Mount Bouleau and the golden Salmon River Valley. You pass by a couple of lakes on the trail, the largest of which is Douglas Lake, part of the Upper Nicola Indian Band land. 

Salmon Lake Resort is a working ranch and iconic boutique hotel open seasonally. It’s been in business since 1908 and offers world-class fly-fishing tours where the rainbow trout are huge! The trail north of Salmon Lake traverses along the Salmon River.

Douglas Lake Road is a double-lane dirt and gravel road that is well-maintained. 4WD is not required. The road does have washboard sections, but it’s not too bad. It travels through an open cattle range, so beware of livestock and wildlife. 

This trail is accessed via Highway 97 in the north, near Westwold, and it intersects with Pennask Lake Trail in the south.
