The Old Coach Greenway is a well marked, nine kilometre trail that follows the historic Old Coach Road from Dry Gulch north to the Village of Radium Hot Springs. Open for non-motorized use only, the trail winds its way through dry fir forests and along grassland benches. The trail boasts of many spectacular viewpoints overlooking the Columbia River Wetlands and has interpretive stops of interest along the way.
In 2014, the RDEK completed a grading project as part of our regular trail maintenance. This grading was done to address safety concerns created by erosion, and to complete ditching and drainage improvements. In addition, we removed the in-growth of vegetation that was limiting visibility for users and posing a fire risk for service vehicles requiring access in the area. Due to the grading, the trail surface was soft and conditions were dusty through the late summer and into the fall.
Over the winter and into the spring, the ground is expected to compact.
