Fletcher Falls

Just outside of Kaslo, Fletcher Creek drops into an impressive waterfall as it flows into Kootenay Lake. It’s a quick, scenic hike down to the falls, and Fletcher Creek also offers a picnic area and backcountry camping.

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.

Morning Mountain Trails

Less than ten minutes from Nelson, the network of trails at Morning Mountain is fantastic hiking! The trails wind at a comfortable climb and will take you through dark cedar forests, across wildflower meadows, and up to distant views of Kokanee and the Valhalla Mountains.

Svoboda Road Trails

A solid trek from the edge of Nelson up into West Arm Provincial Park. The trail winds up in a scenic clearing, looking past Nelson and beyond into the Kootenay River valley.
