Long Description:
Of the many trails in the area, many of which end on mountain tops, this is one of the easier ones, as it follows the old CPR railbed from Warfield up the mountain to Rossland. Rossland claims itself to be the Mountain Bike Capital of Canada, although that title is now officially held by Squamish. They do have a lot of trails, ranging in difficulty from flat and easy to straight up.

This Trail is 7.1 km in length, beginning just southeast of Village Square Park in Warfield and ending just below downtown Rossland.

There is a small amount of parking available at the trailhead, more at the nearby park. The railbed necessarily takes quite a firrerent route than does the highway, and is mostly a wilderness trail, quiet and peaceful most all the way up to Rossland. Nearer to Rossland the railbed skirts the southern edge of the golf course.
