Hike the Kaslo River Trail

Rate this Adventure 1.9 miles  - Loop Trail

Added by Alyssa + Hannah ODYSEA

Lush forest, gushing rivers and scenic views. This flat hike following the Kaslo river is great for all ages and abilities. 

The trail begins at the end of Railway avenue near downtown. The trail passes through the red bridge above the river, where you may just see salmon in the stream if you're lucky!

The trail has something for everyone. From the gushing icy river with a snow-capped mountain range in the distance, to green lush rain forests full of hundreds of different mushrooms.

It is a relatively flat walk and the path is well maintained all year round, a nice easy hike for all ages and abilities, although remarkably beautiful as it follows the river and passes through the thick forest.
