The close-knit community of Trail is flanked by the Monahsee Mountains to the west and the Selkirk Mountains to the east. A visit to Trail should certainly include a tour of the Trail Museum, the Sports Hall of Memories and the Teck Trail Operations Interpretive Centre - the huge smelter complex at the heart of this small city has been in operation for more than a century. For great views, live music, picnic sites and a fine beach to cool off, head to Gyro Park after your day of exploring.
Located east of the city of Trail, Fruitvale was originally named Beaver Siding in 1893 as a railway stop for the Nelson and Fort Sheppard Railway. In 1906, Fruitvale Limited purchased a great deal of land on both sides of this stop and changed the name to Fruitvale in a bid to attract settlement in the area. Today, Fruitvale is a full-service community with retail, grocery, and many services in their pleasant downtown centre. They also offer several parks and sports fields.
