Contact: Channin Liedtke, Facilities Administration Manager
Located north of Nelson, beautiful Kokanee Glacier Provincial Park offers an excellent backcountry adventure for the whole family. Sitting mostly above 1,800 metres in elevation, the park has three glaciers - Kokanee, Caribou, and Woodbury - which feed over 30 lakes and are the headwaters of many creeks. The new Kokanee Glacier Cabin is on the shores of Kaslo lake, and is ideally situated for summertime hiking and scrambling adventures. In the winter, Kokanee Glacier Provincial Park is a ski touring paradise, and the Kokanee Glacier Cabin is situated to best take advantage of the endless skiing terrain, and to provide you with an unforgettable experience. Summertime access to the Kokanee Glacier Cabin starts at the Gibson Lake trailhead. To get there follow Highway 3A from Nelson for 19 km to Kokanee Creek road which leads to Gibson Lake. From Gibson Lake hike past Kokanee Lake over Kokanee Pass and down to Kaslo Lake. The cabin is at the north end of the Kaslo lake, past the campground. Hiking distance is 7 kilometres with 485 metres elevation gain and 100 metres loss. Note that all roads in the park may not be suitable for low-clearance vehicles. Park visitors are recommended to protect their vehicle with chicken wire to deter porcupines from chewing on rubber hoses and tires.
Route of the Hiawatha Taft MT and Pearson ID Phone: (208) 744-1301
This portion of the Olympian Hiawatha route has been called one of the most breathtaking scenic stretches of railroad in the country. The "crown jewel" of rail-to-trail mountain bicycle trails is operated by Lookout Pass Ski Area which is located adjacent to I-90 at the Idaho/Montana state line, 12 miles east of historic Wallace, Idaho. The Hiawatha Trail is typically open daily from around May 24 thru October 5 from 8:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. PDT. Call ahead to make sure. Every year the snowpack is different so opening date changes. This is a 15 mile downhill bike trail on an abandoned railroad line. People from 5 to 95 have ridden the trail. Most people buy a ticket at the Taft exit on Interstate 90 in Montana near the Idaho border. At the bottom the trail, they take a shuttle ride back to their car in Taft, MT. The cost of the trail pass is $9 for adults and $6 for children 3 - 13. The shuttle ride is $9. Bike rentals (which include a bike rack for your car) can be had at Lookout Pass Ski Area. Call (208) 744-1301 or go to www.skilookout.com for more information.
