Tulip Creek Falls

Short, sweet, spectacular – that’s the trail up to Tulip Creek Falls. It’s less of a hike and more of a diversion, but it’s well worth the trip!

Slocan – Kootenay Lookout

Let’s be honest. There are many hikes that end in climatic viewpoints all up and down the Kootenay River valley. This is yet another one, and although the lookout offers a big view of Crescent Valley and Playmor Junction, the trail itself is underdeveloped and underwhelming.

Brilliant Overlook

An incredibly scenic hike just outside Castlegar! It’s hard work stomping up that trail, but the panoramic views overlooking the Columbia River Valley are well worth it.

Rail Trail to Five Mile Point (Troup Beach)

All aboard the Great Northern Rail Trail! It’s not the most exciting hike, but the rail-grade is easy, gentle walking. The destination of this hike is white sandy Troup Beach at Five Mile Point – a great picnic spot with shallow water, sandbars, and solitude.

Idaho Peak

Hiking at the top of the world has never been easier! Idaho peak is a short ridge-line trail offering spectacular panoramas and endless wildflowers.

You won’t be disappointed standing atop the highest peak in the Rossland Range. At 2377m, Old Glory towers above the visible world and offers spectacular views of the nearby Monashee mountains. Most of this hike is done up high, along alpine meadows and ridge lines, so your trek will be bordered by wildflowers and the …
