NorthStar Rails to Trails

The scenic paved 28 km Northstar Rails to Trails links the cities of Cranbrook and Kimberley. Public washrooms, picnic tables and memorial benches overlooking the views can be found along the way. 

Cranbrook Trailhead: 0 km: Highway 3/95 at the north end of the city at Chamber of Commerce Visitor Info Centre.

200 m: Take highway 95A to Kimberley (right lane).

1 km: Drive under the railway overpass. Immediately take the industrial-looking Collinson Rd. left. From here it is confusing.

200 m: Road curves right to a wide junction. Take the right fork (north) onto a gravel residential road.

300 m: Take left fork up steep little hill suitable for a car and park in a spacious paved lot with outhouses, kiosk and the inviting trail heading north.

Other trailheads are in Marysville, Kimberley and where roads intersect with the trail. 

The trail is for non-motorized use.
