Redstreak Campground Trail Description

Although it is only a short adventure, the Redstreak Campground Trail is a fantastic hiking route for beginners and families with young children, as there is plenty to see along the easy and well-maintained paths. Starting at the Radium Hot Springs, the trail will take you south across Sinclair Creek to climb uphill above the valley floor. From here, you will turn to the west and hike parallel to the creek, following it to a lookout on the edge of the Redstreak Campground that offers some beautifully scenic views that sweep across the Kootenay Valley. After taking in the sights, head back along the trail and wrap up your adventure with a dip in the relaxing hot springs.
