    Isadore Canyon Loop

    The Isadore Canyon Loop is a 5.8 km hiking circuit to the east of Cranbrook that traverses a mix of forested trails and rugged canyon terrain to reach two scenic viewpoints overlooking the valley. From the viewpoints, you will have a spectacular sightline that stretches east across the Kootenay River Valley towards the imposing Canadian Rockies that dominate the landscape. As parts of this trail are fairly new, hikers should make sure to bring a trail map or GPS in order to stay on the correct path.

    Route Description for Isadore Canyon Loop

    Hiking the Isadore Canyon Loop is a quick way to get some pretty amazing views of the flat valley landscape and rugged mountain scenery that characterizes this part of British Columbia. The moderate terrain and minor changes in elevation make this a great trail for some weekend family exploring in Cranbrook.

    From the parking area, follow the trail into the forest cover to the south, making your way around the loop in a clockwise direction. As you gain some elevation along the trail, you will eventually arrive at the scenic viewpoints that look out over the Kootenay River valley. Take in the amazing views and try to spot any recognizable peaks, such as Mount Fisher, Lone Peak, and The Steeples. After taking in the views, continue along the forested trail and appreciate the tranquil setting that can be found through the unreal woodland landscape. Once you have completed the loop, you will arrive back at the parking area where you began your journey.
