From grasslands to glaciers, panoramic mountain vistas to narrow canyons, Kootenay National Park is a land of unique juxtapositions. Every twist and turn along the 94-kilometre highway from the Alberta border to the tranquil village of Radium Hot Springs, British Columbia, offers a new surprise.
Short trails lead to natural treasures such as the Paint Pots, where Indigenous peoples collected naturally occurring pigments from sacred ochre-beds, and Numa Falls, where the Vermilion River carves a path between glistening black rock walls. Adventurous hikers have their choice of backcountry campgrounds as they trek the 55-kilometre Rockwall Trail, while families can enjoy some modern comforts at Redstreak Campground or take a relaxing soak in the steaming hot springs.
