People in Princeton are serious about hiking.
They maintain an excellent variety of trails in the valley bottom along the Similkameen and Tulameen rivers, on the rolling grasslands and in the high country forests that surround the community.
Walk in the footsteps of fur traders and pioneers, trek through railway tunnels, view First Nations pictographs and ochre bluffs, climb to subalpine meadows and take in panoramic views of the Cascade Mountains.
Most trails around Princeton are also ideal for mountain biking and horseback riding.
Trans Canada Trail
The gentle railway grades of the Trans Canada Trail, which passes through Princeton on the rail bed of the historic Kettle Valley Railway, provides access to some of the best sights in the region.
