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

The incredible Spring weather continues into May with near-perfect riding and hiking conditions. Everyone is commenting on how dry the forest is and it seems likely that we will be soon hoping for rain, rather the opposite. Snow still remains on shaded aspects above 1700 m, but all sub-alpine trails are open, tacky and lightly sprinkled with golden needles. The KCTS trail crew have cleared and assessed all sub-alpine trails within the network, those remaining will be monitored for snow melt.

The Seven Summits and Old Glory trails remain closed due to snow and winter windfall, but I expect that with this warm weather that they will be open earlier than ever before, perhaps mid-late June. Get out and enjoy the bounty.

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 -
