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

At the beginning of May 2015, most trails are starting to present summer-like conditions, with dry soils and dry vegetation. Currently, the riding and walking both in Rossland and the Columbia Valley are excellent with hardly a wet area to be found. Trail users may still encounter fallen trees on several trails, however, the trail crew are in the process of clearing and opening all KCTS trails and this will quickly become less and a concern.

Trails opened so far include: Cemetery, Milky Way, KC, Green Door, Techno Grind, Redhead, Lower Red Top, Drakes, Calderra, Centennial, Rogers, Antenna, Flagpole, Old Orchard, Sunningdale, Ravens Rock, Miral Heights, Bluff, Moes, Larrys and Drifter.

Other trails being riden include: KC Ridge, Whiskey, Tamarack, Crown Point, Northstar, Full Monte, Snake, Spring Cleaning, Railgrade and Stunted Growth.

The Larch Ridge/Monticola area has still too many large drifts of snow to be open and it looks like 3 feet of snow sits atop parts of the Seven Summits. However, if this wonderful spring weather continues, we will no doubt see the earliest dates for opening our alpine trails.

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 -
