    Route Description for Deja View/Old Coach Trail Loop

    Hiking the Deja View/Old Coach Trail Loop is a perfect way to spend some quality time outdoors in the area surrounding Invermere. This multi-use trail is most commonly used by hikers and mountain bike enthusiasts and runs parallel to the coursing waters of the Columbia River. Because the route traverses the bluff above the river, hikers should be careful along this route as many steep drops could result in serious injury. Keep an eye out for other hikers or passing cyclists, and make sure to leave plenty of room for those attempting to pass you on the trail. Additionally, there is little protection from the sun on this route, so bring plenty of water along for your hike.

    The trail begins from a parking lot just off Highway BC-93 and follows a course along the upper portion of the escarpment. As you hike to the north along the trail, you will have a gorgeous view that stretches out to the west and includes countless mountains within the rugged and majestic Purcell Range. After reaching the northernmost point along the trail, it will turn south and follow a route that runs a bit closer to the rushing waters of the Columbia River. From here, you will have a great view of the water and surrounding wetland landscape as you work your way back towards the trailhead. This trail may be a bit on the longer side, but it offers an excellent opportunity to hike along some relatively easy terrain and experience some spectacular views of the surrounding area.
