Established in the 1890s, Trail is flanked by the Monashee 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.

The Trail and District Arts Council is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to foster the arts in Trail and District by providing services and resources to the local affiliated arts, cultural and heritage organizations. The Council continues to raise awareness of the arts, and continues to offer the community the means to experience the diversity that artistic and cultural activities have to offer. The Arts Council partners with other community organizations in ways that will benefit arts, culture and heritage.
