The varied terrain and ecological diversity of the Kootenay Rockies region provides incredible hiking opportunities for enthusiasts of all experience and ability levels.

Hikers experience spectacular mountain views, wildflower alpine meadows, old-growth forests, wild rivers, and thunderous waterfalls, while traversing the unspoiled wilderness of southeastern British Columbia.

Hikes in the Kootenay Rockies region range from short interpretive walks, with easy roadside access, to major multi-day backcountry treks. Many hiking trails are located in national or provincial parks, which often offer excellent campsites and facilities.

Additionally, hiking trails are found in virtually every community throughout the region, such as Rossland, named one of "10 Great Adventure Towns" by National Geographic Adventure, one of "Canada's Best Outdoor Towns" by Explore. The Kootenay Rockies are also known for its epic rock climbing, mountaineering and mountain biking.
