Welcome to the official website of the Kootenay Columbia Trails Society, 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 and show that we need to keep these trails open.
The Trail Crew has maintained and assessed almost the entire network of trails for the 2013 season. Reports suggest that the trails are in possibly the best condition they've ever experienced. The list of trails that have been worked on include : Cemetery, Rogers, Upper Green Door, Larry's, Moe's, Tamarack, Kootenay Columbia, KC Ridge, Northstar (Back of KC), Rubberhead, Whiskey, Miral Heights, Bluffs, TechnoGrind, Miners, Redhead, Redtop, Full Monte, Drakes, Milky Way, Larch Ridge, COG, Monticola, Dewdney, Doukobour, Flume, Crown Point and Cherry Poppins,. We have removed a large number of fallen trees across the Sheep Creek trail (formerly known as Dewdney Backside) and have recently began working on the Seven Summits trail. Snow still exists on higher elevation trails such as Seven Summits and Plewman/Old Glory trails with a large amount of windfall, however, with the warm June weather, all trails may be open by the end of the month.
