There are two major trails that leave the old mining road; one is the Blue Grouse Basin trail and the other is the trail to Tanal Lake. The trail to Tanal Lake continues on to Enterprise Pass which accesses the core area of Kokanee Glacier Park just above the Kokanee Glacier Chalet at Kaslo Lake.
In the summer of 2018, Slocan Valley resident Ron Groom undertook the task of reopening the trail to Blue Grouse Basin. During the following winter, he joined the Friends of West Kootenay Parks and over the past two summers (2019 and 2020), the clearing of both trails has been largely completed. Thanks to Ron for his efforts.
