The New Hazelton area has a plethora of multi-use, multi-level trails frequented by casual day-trippers and extreme alpinists. A few of the local routes are marked, but hundreds more are not.
The area's serene, natural beauty creates the perfect environment for a short hike along a wilderness trail or a stroll along the many paths within and between the area's communities.
Many of these trails are also frequented by ATVs, horseback riders, mountain bikers, and in the winter, snowmobilers, cross-country skiers, and snowshoers.
Eagle Down Path
A popular route for practical and recreational use is the paved Eagle Down path that runs from New Hazelton through Hagwilget, Two Mile, and Gitanmaax, all the way to Old Hazelton. The entire length of the path takes less than an hour to walk depending on the season and walker. The trail is a great way to take a closer look at some of the communities and to enjoy the surrounding mountain views.
