The Apache Loop is a 4.0mi lollipop hiking route in Kimberley, BC that passes through the Kimberley Nature Park and provides some nice views of the surrounding area. The trail is forested, but it does feature a few viewpoints, from which you will be able to see across the valley and spot a few mountain tops. Make sure to bring a trail map or GPS, as there are several intersecting routes that will make navigation difficult in some places.
To get to the Apache Loop trailhead from the BC-95A highway in Kimberley, drive southeast and make a right turn onto Dalgren Street. Turn left after 459ft onto Dewolfe Avenue and follow it for 853ft. Make a right on Marsden Street and follow it until the end, where you will find the trailhead.

Apache Loop Trail Description
As the Apache Loop is part of a dense network of multi-use routes in the area, you will need to keep an eye on the trail and follow along with a GPS in order to remain on track; otherwise, you will likely end up a bit further into the nature park than expected — which isn’t always a bad thing! Heading out from the trailhead on Marsden Street, follow the path to the southwest through the tree cover until you reach a fork in the trail. Follow the path to the right in order to complete the forested loop in a counterclockwise direction. Along the trail, you will pop in and out of the cover of the forest, so be prepared to get a bit of sun on this hike. Take in the intermittent views of the surrounding area as you work your way around the loop and eventually return to the trailhead.
