The KCTS Trail Network

The Kootenay Columbia Trails Society is dedicated to managing a world class trail system that encourages people to be active and appreciate the natural environment. We employ sustainable trail building techniques that produce paths that can withstand erosion as well as providing an enjoyable experience for a variety of users. Our trails cater to multi-use, non-motorized traffic around the City of Rossland and Columbia/Beaver Valleys and currently comprises 71 individual trails and over 186 km of singletrack. 

Rossland on

A labyrinth of interconnected trails winds through the forested slopes of the Rossland Range and throughout the Columbia and Beaver Valleys. Many trace old wagon roads, rail grades, and even smuggler’s routes that date back to the late 1800’s and early 1900’s when Rossland was a booming gold mining town.

The network includes:

  • Wide and gently angled historic rail grades
  • Winding paths through forested glades and across streams
  • Climbs past historic mining ruins to panoramic views
  • Precipitous drops with jumps and stunts for expert bikers

There are trails for every ability level, dedicated to the non-motorized pursuits of walking, hiking, trail running, mountain biking, snowshoeing, cross country skiing and horse riding.

We hope you enjoy our trails!
