Recreation Sites & Trails



We would like to mention a few very general guidelines for use of the Rec Site before you go out there. Some things may not be that obvious to newcomers to our area, other items may be just the typical advice. Please review these before you go:

  • The shelters in the area are for day-use only, there is no leeway on this.
  • Additional shelters are not legal in this area, so please do not build new shelters.
  • "Pack it in, pack it out" guidelines apply here, especially in our community recreation area where a volunteer will be cleaning up after you if you do not clean up after yourself.
  • Bears do frequent our area, so be Bear Aware, and plan accordingly.
  • Take the steps for any backcountry outing: inform someone where you are going, take appropriate emergency and technical gear, know your experience level, bring clothing options, take a map, and take other typical steps for a safe outing.
  • Ask a local, we've been known to assist!


The pdf maps below are downloadable and printable (eg download it to your phone). It seemed to make sense to split up the North and Side sides, so your print might show enough detail.

Popular Routes

Old Glory Summer Hike: about 5-7 hours, this is a strenuous hiking trail to the peak of Old Glory where you can visit the old forest service lookout. A classic and well worth it to learn the history.

Winter Snowshoe/Cross-Country Ski to Red Dog Cabin: about an hour, this is a relatively easy trip to one of the more popular shelters.

Commercial Use

Because of the huge increase in public use now that the area is officially designated and being developed, we have had to implement a policy to manage potential commercial use in the Recreation Site. The Commercial Use Policy established on June 1, 2017 explains.



NOTE: it’s a “Site” because that’s what the relevant legislation calls it, but it includes lots of area.
