This trail is great for hiking or cycling and can be accessed all year. It's one of our favourites for a short bike ride with the option of riding the trail both ways or returning to Radium via Hwy 93/95. There’s a trail head with information kiosk at both ends, one just outside Radium, one a bit further South at Dry Gulch. When hiking we like to start at the Dry Gulch trail head and work our way back towards Radium.

A few side loops lead out to some spectacular look-offs over the Columbia River wetlands where you can often observe eagles as they scan the wetlands for prey. Deer & Bighorn Sheep are also common sights. Elevation gain/loss is minimal - a few short hills near Radium that are fun on a bike but hardly noticeable when walking. Cyclists take note: It can get a little dusty on the trail in the summer
