Trail Description:

A circuit route of mixed forests, ridgelines, vistas, and wild flowers overlooking Falkland.

The trail starts on the right/north side of the maintenance road, climbing steeply up through the forest to emerge on the open ridgeline. Follow the ridge climbing eastward toward the obvious summit of Tuktakamin with its array of radio towers. The last climb to the summit weaves in and out of the forest and bush, passing an old wooden building elevated on posts.

From the summit, the loop trail can be found by exploring the western slope below the radio towers. It drops through the trees steeply and meets the maintenance road. The trail continues a short walk further down the road on the left where it climbs another ridge before dropping steeply back into the forest. Watch for occasional blaze markers. The trail emerges onto the maintenance road just below (west) of the starting point. A short walk back up the road returns you to your vehicle. See the Vernon Outdoor Club Hiking Guide for a more detailed description.
