If you are looking to combine some sensory magic with your run or hike, consider Tighty Whitey Trail, in Lois Creek. The best larch show we’ve seen this year.

Are there any other places with so many awesome trails in such a small area? PM us if you’d like a high res copy PDF of the map.. This is a work in progress and will be updated as new trail information becomes available. It contains: biking, hiking and skiing tails. It is not meant to replace the biking information available on Trailforks nor is it as detailed and comprehensive as the Kimberley Nature Park Trail Guide.

You better get out there before the colours are gone. We've got to have one of the best places in the world to see the changing of the colours including the larches. And it's all right here in our own Kimberley Nature Park.. https://www.facebook.com/kimberleynaturepark/

Welcome

Who are we? The Kootenay Orienteering Club hosts orienteering and trail running events in the Kootenay region of British Columbia, in particular, in the Rossland, Cranbrook and Kimberley areas. 

Orienteering

More than just a run, orienteering combines fitness, strategy, map reading, and navigation skills to find a series of pre-set check -points.  

Trail Running

Trail running get's you off the roads and onto softer ground. Whether running along a forest trail, over a hill or through an open field, training running can be both invigorating and great for your health.

Why Just Run?

Our focus is to have fun while you run. The best way to get started is to just come out to any of the orienteering or trail running events. Our Thursday night TNT's are a perfect place to get started. If you arrive a few minutes before the starting time, we will give you a brief introduction and then you can go around all or part of a course, on your own or with someone else. It's easy to learn and a lot of fun.
