Epsom - Last Spike

Provincial Park
The Canadian Northern Pacific Last Spike stop of interest plaque is located in a pull-off on the Trans-Canada Highway approximately 15 km south of Ashcroft/19.5 km north of Spences Bridge. Access to Epsom Park is via an unmarked access road just to the south of the Last Spike plaque; use caution when entering and exiting. Please note that the road is only passable in its lower section by 4 wheel-drive vehicles, and that the road stops short of the railway tracks; access to the other side of the tracks is by foot only. Beware of posion ivy.

Park at large pullout by plaque and hike down, or park on 4x4 access trail on the flat field before steep downhill descent.

Beside 4x4 trail to the right at the gulley. Under large sage brush.
