Kaslo to Fish Lake Wagon Road Historic Trail.
This historic, multi-use Recreation Sites and Trails BC trail is maintained by the Kaslo to Sandon Rails to Trails Society. There are a number of key access locations and orientation points along Highway 31A. Once on the trail, there are kilometre markers and directional signage along the way.
It is possible to travel this route from Kaslo through to the summit of the Valley of the Ghosts at Fish Lake without travelling Highway 31A. Much of this trail follows the wagon road constructed between Kaslo and Three Forks in 1892 to access the rich silver mines of the Silvery Slocan. Other sections of the trail follow the route of the historic Kaslo and Slocan Railway.
The trail includes a pedestrian bridge, soda springs, Rossiter Creek and other points of interest. At the Fish Lake Rest Stop, there are restrooms, picnic facilities and fishing. It is possible to continue all the way to Sandon if you like.
