Summit Creek Trail

The Summit Creek Trail is the back half of the Balancing Rock Trail, one my handyman talked about here.  The Summit Creek runs under Highway 3, a short highway walk from the Balancing Rock parking area.  The trail head starts at the bridge.  We parked just off the north side of the road, right before the bridge, it means a walk along the highway either going or coming.  If you want to further your walk, you can dip down into the Creston Valley Wildlife Management Area at the Summit Creek Park Trail to the Canada Trail and on over to the Marsh Trail to the parking area.

Lighthouse Trail

Exploring the area, we found a short trail in the Kootenay Bay area.  It’s about a hour’s drive from Creston.  The trip winds north along Highway 3A, dipping and doodling along past such places as Wynndel; Sidar; Boswell and Crawford Bay.  On a warm summer day there are places to stop and enjoy the view, along with great attractions like the Glass House, or the Artisan community at Crawford Bay.  Today, however, it was damp and a bit drizzly.Crawford Bay looking South [Read more…]
