The Columbia Trail offers a great singletrack experience along the east side of the Columbia River between Sunningdale and Ootischenia. Old and raw, the trail is often narrow and exposed, with sandy sections and creek crossings. Ridden in both directions, either as an out and back, or with a vehicle drop.

The Columbia River Trail is part of the Trans-Canada Trail. The North portion of the trail is maintained by the Castlegar Parks and Trails Society and the South portion is maintained by the Kootenay Columbia Trail Society.

Loose and sandy in places, but overall in great shape. No trees down and there's a new bridge on the north end.
