    Directions to Trailhead

    The Magic Line Trail is a 7.2 km lollipop hiking route in Kimberley, BC, that will take you along some undulating terrain with spectacular views overlooking the valley and the Rocky Mountains off in the distance. This trail is well-work, making it easy to traverse and navigate; however, a strong network of intersecting trails means that you should bring a GPS to stay on the correct path. This hike is a great way to experience the natural beauty and picturesque scenery of Kimberley.

    Route Description for Magic Line Trail

    Hiking the Magic Line Trail is a fun way to both get out for a bit of exercise as well as enjoy the beautiful views of the landscape surrounding Kimberley. With scenic views overlooking the valley, and the rugged wall made up by the Rocky Mountains just beyond it, this hike offers some truly breathtaking views for the effort required to complete it. Setting out from the Kimberley Nordic Club, follow the trail through the trees to the southeast to begin the hiking loop. Along the trail, there will be a series of three ascents and descents that provide incredible views for the day, with the rest of the route being shrouded by light forest cover. As you make your way along the undulating terrain, you will cross over two creeks before the trail turns north on the return journey to the trailhead and your parked vehicle.
