Kootenay Columbia Trails Society        

Welcome to the official site of the Kootenay Columbia Trails Society (KCTS), which details our extensive regional network of trails around the City of Rossland and neighboring Columbia Valley region of B.C., Canada. The Society is dedicated to the highest standard of sustainable trails, satisfying user experiences and responsible trail management.

The continued success and expansion of our trail network depends on the support of members and volunteers. Become a member of the KCTS today and show that we need to keep these trails open and remarkable.

Trail Status

Spring is most definitely here in the Rossland/Trail area with many trails free of snow and often under ideal riding/hiking conditions. Please be aware that early season conditions exist on all trails, with winter windfall, muddy, icy sections and worse expected. The trail maintenance program has not yet commenced (late April 2015) so all trail users should exercise caution.

Lower elevation and south facing trails are seeing the most biking and hiking traffic. Trails such as Cemetery, Spring Cleaning, Milky Way, KC, KC Ridge, Green Door, Sunningdale, Bluffs, Miral Heights, Antenna, Snake, Whisky, Redhead (lower), Redtop (to Poochies Cabin), Centennial, Moes and Larrys are all receiving daily use.

For Miral Heights (Trail) users, please visit our map page for recommended route and parking advice, which will alleviate much of the noise/parking concerns for the local residents.

The KCTS trail network is made possible by corporate and public support. Over 90% of the trails are located on private property, so special gratitude goes out to local landowners. The KCTS wishes to particularly thank the following -
