Technically the Pass Creek Road moves out of the Slocan Valley, but it is worth mentioning, as an interesting alternative to Highway 3A back to Castlegar.
Turn east at Crescent Valley, cross the bridge and take an immediate left to get on this 30 km wind along traditionally Doukhobor farmlands and Goose Creek. At the southern end of the road is Robson and Castlegar.
The Pass Creek Park near Castlegar was established in the 1960’s and has a 30 site campground and is a well used multi-purpose park, offering camping, swimming, picnicking, beaching and ball sports
It is also the home of the Annual Pass Creek fair held on the third weekend of September.
