Full of wildflowers and vibrant colours, the Seven Summits trail is open again for this season.

With cooler temperatures over the past couple of days, it is the perfect getaway for an active adventure close to town. Take your mountain bike or simply go for a hike and admire the stunning views.

Stew Spooner of Kootenay Columbia Trails Society says that the trail is in great shape this season.

“We had the crew, of three workers, putting in twelve full days of clearing the trail before this season,” he said, adding “it is hard work because it is remote and difficult to access.”

The crew had to remove rocks and move windfall and left the trail in premium condition.

People are coming to town just because of the trail—well worth a visit.
