You will want to check out the alternative loops and side trails that give great options to explore the upper Oldman valley.
At the north end of the loop is Chain Lakes Provincial Park. It was established along the Chain Lakes Reservoir. The Cowboy Trail runs along the eastern boundary of the park. It is open year round and offers camping and day use facilities. Year-round fishing is a popular activity. The reservoir is regularly stocked with lake trout. A number of walking trails of various lengths and levels are located throughout the park.
From Chain Lakes head west up into the Rockies on Highway 532 (Johnson Creek Road) over Plateau Mountain into the Livingstone River valley which boasts some of the best eastslope cutthroat flyfishing in the world. Check out Livingstone Falls before heading south on Highway 940 and looping back south on Highwat 517 (Maycroft Road) which follows the Oldman River east through the Gap, a narrow slice in the Livingstone Range.
