Slocan Valley Rail Trail
Paradise Valley Lodge is located at the center of a wonderful 50 km. (31 mile) riverside trail.
It is a non-motorized trail for biking, walking, horseback riding. It is groomed all winter for cross country skiing or a moonlit walk.
It was formerly a rail line, so it is relatively flat and perfect for all levels of fitness. From Winlaw one can travel 25 km’s (15.5 miles) either north or south along the peaceful Slocan River. More info
