Kimberley Nature Park Hiking
Kimberley Nature Park (800ha/1800ac) is one of the largest municipal parks in Canada, with over scores of multi-use trails. The entrance locations to the park include the Kimberley Nordic Ski Area, Swan Avenue, Higgins Street, and Jimmy Russell Road.
A long and successful history of mining has left numerous old exploration roads on the mountains, which have been developed into trails.
