Columbia River

The Columbia River Trail begins from a signed, trailhead, found at the end of a rough gravel access road located north of the community of Trail, BC near the Sunningdale water tower.

The narrow hiking trail follows an dirt and sandy path. The trail is easy going most of the way with some sections covered with exposed tree roots and loose rocks. Along the route hikers climb over rock slides, bypass big boulders and explore through white spruce forests. Watch for ticks as this is tick country.

The narrow trail continues along a dirt path to a northern trailhead located near Jordan Creek. Near Jordan Creek the Columbia River Trail connects to Columbia Road.

At this point of the trail hikers have an option of returning back the same way they came or continue along the gravel road to Ootischenia which is south of the community of Castlegar, BC. The entire route, combining the hiking trail and the gravel road is 25 kilometres long one-way.

The hiking trail is an "Environmental Sensitive Trail" therefore no motorized vehicles are permitted on the trail.
