Long Description:
This is a large You Are Here Sign located at the entrance to the trail heads. Rossland offers a network of trails for all endurance levels from easy to strenuous.

Walkers, bikers and talkers use these trails. There are some trails that allow horses, check map. On the map are seven designated trails for mountain bikes ONLY.

Dog are allowed on the trails; however you must clean up any canine deposits.

The Centennial trail is the easiest trail on the circuit. It is 2.2 km that parallels the Centre Star Gulch Reservoir. It was a beautiful day when we walked the trail, reservoir was calm and the ducks were making a great day of it too.

The Centennial trail is wide, reasonably flat and you can turn around at the end of the reservoir and return the way you came down the trail. However, if you continue around the reservoir and connect to the Moe’s Trail it does become steeper, somewhat narrower with more variations in terrain. There is one fairly steep climb, but is still considered easy to moderate.

The Kootenay Columbia Trail Society:

Maintains an extensive and diverse network of recreational trails throughout the region.
These provide a vast playground for the variety of self-propelled trail users.
The information on this map is intended only as an introduction to the trails, so caution that many factors can dramatically alter conditions, close, or re-route trails.
Check on the conditions before heading out.

Designated trails are managed and maintained by the Kootenay Columbia Trails Society, for self-propelled recreational use. Most of the trails on this map cross private land, and public access cannot be taken for granted.
