Happy Trails!
LENGTH & DIFFICULTY
7.6 km | 2.5 hours | Moderate
The Suicide Creek Trail is a perfect hike for families and beginners because it is well-marked and the picnic area and bridges provide an enjoyable hiking experience.
The beginning of the trail is characterized by beautiful trees covered with moss. Even though the Suicide Creek Trail is a flat area, watch your feet as tree roots are very prominent. There are two fabulous bridges to cross - Four Roads Bridge and Koleszar Krossing. The rocky area bellow is a beautiful spot and it is located a few metres down after the Fern Falls. (around half way through the hike).
MAP & DIRECTIONS:
- 1st Access Point: 5.3 km after the end of the paved road used to get to Duck Lake.
- 2nd Access Point: 500m after the first access you will see a sign for the Taylor Way/Cable Trail. Park on the left side of the road and you will find the Suicide Creek trail entrance on the direct opposite side of the Taylor Way sign. Regardless of which access you decide to take, the hike will bring you back to Burma Road 500 metres away from your vehicle.
