Pine Trees of Pilot Peninsula

One of the most gentle yet lush hikes in the West Kootenay...

After a scenic ferry trip to Crawford Bay, enjoy a full day of gentle hiking on the east side of Kootenay Lake in the giant ponderosa pine trees and associated dry flora. Enjoy lunch on one of the serene pebble beaches or beautiful rock outcrops.

For fit hikers extend your day by walking to the Tipi Camp.
