Distance 13.3 km one way, height gain 250 m, fairly easy
This is the quieter, northerly extension to the infinitely more popular southerly section of Tom Snow Trail, and like its southern counterpart it's made up of exploration and logging roads, and old and new trails, travelling though pine forest and meadows. If you visit the low trails in the shoulder seasons, you'll find the flowery meadows of summer a revelation. Backpackers use it to gain the north ridge of Moose Mountain via upper Moose Creek.
Start: West access Powderface Trail (road) at Dawson day-use area.
South access Via Tom Snow trail south at the Bragg-Moose watershed
May also be accessed at Spruce Woods Day Use Area. See sketch map
