Similkameen River Trail

  • Similkameen River Trail 1
  • Similkameen River Trail 2

A true jewel. This wide and flat rails-to-trails project follows the old Washington & Great Northern rail bed as it winds along in parallel to the river. Paved and gravelled over most its length the trail is appropriate for easy walking, running, biking, birding, and wildlife viewing. The trail is low angle and easily followed for its entire length. If your preference is for an easier hike just go as far as the old girder bridge spanning the river before turning around (2 miles round trip). For a longer option (4.5 miles round trip) hike all the way to Similkameen Falls overlook before turning around.

* The Similkameen Spur Trail will be closed beginning April 19 for the majority of 2021, with limited closures in 2022.
