Tucked into the southeast corner of BC, the Kootenay Rockies are one of Canada’s best-kept outdoor adventure secrets. As you move west from the world-famous peaks of the Rocky Mountains, the crowds thin out and the opportunities for outdoor adventure grow. Forest-covered mountains hide sun-filled valleys, where rainbow trout swim in sparkling streams and deer graze along the shoreline. A maze of logging roads extends deep into the backcountry, offering access to countless campsites and hiking and mountain biking trails. In the winter, the region is covered by a thick layer of dry, fluffy snow, affectionately referred to by the locals as champagne powder.
To help you take advantage of this incredible region, the latest edition of our Kootenay Rockies Backroad Mapbook features extensive updates and upgrades from our last publication. We have updated our road network, added numerous multi-use trails and paddling routes and expanded our Adventure sections. This Mapbook also includes updated fish stocking and trail charts, private land and labelled fish species for the countless lakes, rivers and streams in the region.
