The Kootenay Rockies, in the southeastern corner of BC, is a region of lakes, glaciers, jagged peaks, and historic towns once home to a silver-mining boom. There are four national parks here, and the area is renowned for its natural hot springs. As you cruise past the mountain scenery, watch for the abundant wildlife that can often be spotted from the highway, including mountain goats, elk, deer, black bears, and grizzlies. This route is especially scenic in early fall when autumn colours dot the hillsides.
Stories of the Gold Rush era—and the routes that led proprietors, miners, and the people who “mined the miners” to the province’s gold fields—have long lured adventurers to British Columbia. “Gold fever” spawned communities seemingly overnight along the Cariboo Gold Rush Trail, and while most towns disappeared as quickly as they emerged, some have lingered, attracting visitors to this day. Visitors with mobility needs will be pleased to find a large network of accessible trails in the region.
