In Greater Trail, hiking and cycling enthusiasts can explore the woodland this summer in a new section of trail opened above Sunningdale.

The new trail, opened by the Kootenay Columbia Trails Society earlier this year, will eventually link with the Society’s Bluffs trail and Miral Heights overlooking Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital.

This is the first part of a two-year project providing a safe, high-level route that will eventual cross approximately five kilometres of mountain terrain.

The trail access is on the water tower hill in upper Sunningdale, with the trail head halfway up the hill at the hairpin corner.
