Known as the "dirt highway" during the off-season the mountain bike tracks in the Kootenays are (in one word) "EPIC"!

Fun Fact: Upon entering Radium Hot Springs from Kootenay National Park, you will immediately notice a number of life-sized wood carvings on the roadside. This is the studio of local artist Rolf Heer who carves from stumps, driftwood or any other kind of unique wood found in the area.

What you may not know that inside there is a "water- gauntlet", try your luck at not getting sprayed?!
