Located in the land of sports legends and adventurers, and steeped in rich mining history, Trail is the industrial heart of the Kootenays. The town takes its name from the Dewdney Trail, which was started in 1860 to serve as a trade route from the coast to the BC interior. Trail’s transition from frontier to settlement began in 1895, when a smelter was built on a bench above the Columbia River to process ore from the Rossland mines. That smelter later grew to be the largest lead-zinc smelter in the world.

Located in a relatively arid valley carved out by the Upper Columbia River, the town of about 8,000 defies its hard rock location with an impressive Communities in Bloom record of achievement. For three seasons of the year, you’ll find bursts of colour around every corner. The terraced homes and intensive gardens tucked into the winding streets of “Little Italy” are also a delight to see. Some say the best Italian food in the province is to be enjoyed here. A little further up the road towards Rossland is the former Village of Warfield. Tour Warfield to see the style of homes that earned it the nickname “Mickey Mouse Town.”

For much of its history, Trail has earned its reputation as BC’s #1 Sports Town. The Smoke Eaters (now Junior A) hockey team still hold the distinction of being the last Canadian amateur hockey team to win a World Championship, back in 1961. Check out the Trail Sports Hall of Fame at the Trail Memorial Centre downtown – you will be sure to recognize some famous Canadian champions who hail from Trail.
