    Route Description for Confluence Park Trail

    Located at the confluence of the Columbia and Kicking Horse Rivers, Confluence Park and the short trail that runs through it are a work in progress that, once finished, will allow hikers to explore the area along the banks of these powerful rivers. Due to the trail’s proximity to the water, high levels of rainfall and swelling of the riverbanks will often make the trail at least partially submerged during the wetter seasons of the year. Make sure to check trail conditions before heading out to explore the area.

    The trail itself is made up of packed gravel and is level, making for an easy-to-navigate route that hikers of all skill levels can enjoy. Once on the trail, you will be able to view the scenic wetlands and beautiful stretches of forest that line the riverbank, as well as a few planes taking off from the nearby airport.
