Kimberley's 'Rails to Trails'! What was once an abandoned CP Railway between Kimberley and Cranbrook has been converted into 30 kilometres of paved trails, great for biking, walking, running, and roller-blading. With no steep hills, this trail isn't too challenging. It offers spectacular scenic views of the Rocky Mountains and surrounding area, and is definitely a great activity for a sunny day!
