Breathtaking, scenic hiking trails are located in and around Kimberley Alpine Resort.
Many routes start from the base of the mountain, the site of the Kimberley Nature Park.
In fact, there are more than100 km/62 mi of multi-use trails in the park alone, some of which run through or around the resort. A network of Nordic (cross-country) ski trails are also integrated into the nature park trails.
The park area is covered mid-elevation with fir and pine forest, while hikers will notice ponderosa pine and bunchgrass along trails on its lower southern slopes.
There are some wonderful hikes for those who like their walks in high alpine, accessed by the mountain’s NorthStar Express Chairlift. One signature route is Easter Lookout Trail (Intermediate), a 3-km (1.9 mi) trail that climbs a steep 500 m (1,640 ft). It's worth it: hikers are rewarded with awesome vistas of the Kimberley area from the summit.
