The Edelweiss Slough is a 0.6mi out-and-back hiking route that passes through a beautiful stretch of wetland landscape just north of Golden, BC. Along the trail, hikers will have some lovely views of this sodden part of the Columbia Valley and will have the chance to spot the various bird species that call the wetlands home.

Edelweiss Slough Description

Hiking the Edelweiss Slough is a quick trek through a charming stretch of wetlands providing hikers with scenic views of the valley and the chance to spot wildlife. The terrain along this hike is level, which makes it accessible for all types of hikers; however, you might want to bring some water-resistant footwear to stay comfortable along the trail due to the proximity to the water. As you wind your way through the marshy terrain, you will be able to spot several mountain peaks around you, including Navvy Peak and Table Mountain to the east and Moberly Peak to the north. Keep an eye out for birds and other wildlife species that inhabit the surrounding landscape.
