This area is a hiker’s paradise with excursions for families to the avid backcountry adventurer. You’ll find mellow strolls on valley bottom rail trails, scenic views on waterfront paths, multi-day hikes and high alpine backcountry expeditions. Here’s a few highlighted hikes and an extensive list can be viewed here.
Nakusp Hot Springs Trail is an easy / moderate 8.5 km / 5 mi hike that meanders alongside Kuskanax Creek. The Kuskanax Creek foot bridge along the way is a focal point.
Vicky’s View (pictured above) in Nakusp, is easy to access, is close to town and offers a great view. The hike includes a short walk through the forest to be rewarded with views of Nakusp, Monashee and Valhalla mountain ranges, as well as Upper Arrow Lake.
Galena Trail is very popular; a 13 km / 8 mi section of an old CPR rail line that runs from Rosebery to Three Forks where Carpenter Creek can be crossed in a small cable car.
