Trails

The wagon road, rail grades, and pack trails left over from Rossland’s mining heyday have resulted in a legacy of hundreds of kilometers of trails surrounding the town. These trails provide a seemingly endless playground for an enthusiastic community of hikers, mountain bikers, and cross-country skiers. The official trial map is packed with useful information, and it is widely available in town. Rossland is the Mountain Biking Capital of Canada. Many of our trails are perfect for hiking and suitable for horseback riding. Check out Centennial trail and Larry’s Loop or the more vigorous Kootenay-Columbia, Loop trail or the hike to Old Glory. Black bears (in several colours), white tail and mule deer are very common. Grizzly bears, Mountain goats, elk and moose are less frequently seen. Birding is often very good. Golden eagles, Bald eagles and Osprey are often seen.
