The Regional District of Central Kootenay has entered into a License of Occupation Agreement with the Province for this trail, which runs along the former Burlington Northern Santa Fe rail line from Troup Junction to the Village of Salmo. This trail is designated as a multiple purpose regional trail.  On this beautiful trial you can come in contact with local wildlife.
