From cactus to glacier Established in 1920, Kootenay National Park represents the south-western region of the Canadian Rocky Mountains. From glacier-clad peaks along the Continental Divide to the semi-arid grasslands of the Rocky Mountain Trench, where cactus grows, this park is home to a rich diversity of landscapes and ecology.

Beautiful trail - gradual up and down. Went down Kindersley side with a group, it was best for their knees.
Long trousers strongly suggested since high grass + (not sure if it's cow parsnip or giant hogweed). Anyway, I'm not taking any chance.

Fresh bear scat on Aug. 25th but nothing new on Sept. 6

Suggestion: go for the hotsprings in Radium after the hike.

Such a simple walk but a very beautiful one:)

Decent walk/ hike if you don't have the whole day for a hike. Scenic through the forest with a lake at the end. Falls colours make it a great one for sept/ oct. Easy for all and good with dogs.

Fairly easy trail that takes you from Radium's Hot Spring pools to Sinclair Canyon and back. Nice views from the Canyon.

I've gone on a lot of hikes and this was probably the best hike I've done. It's an easy trek until you start having to climb to get to the end of the trail. However, we decided to challenge ourselves and hike all the way to the glacier creek and it was a challenge. The views at the top was worth it and getting a taste of the fresh glacier water. The climb back down is very rocky and steep so I recommend trekking poles and boots that have good soles.

Nice trail, the first section is pretty open and follows a path through young forest. It's great on a sunny day. Once you get into the rocky area near the glacier you're completely surrounded on all sides by mountains. When we went the sun was melting some of the ice on the rock walls making them crash down. It made for a neat show.
