Hiking and Horseback Riding: Most of our trails are appropriate for hiking and many are also suitable for horseback riding. The Centennial trail and Larry's Loop are popular shorter (1-2 hour) strolls. The more vigorous hike (2 hours return) to the summit of Kootenay-Columbia provides a magnificent view of Rossland. The Loop trail makes a great (full day) outing, circumnavigating the town. Further afield, the (full day return) hike to Old Glory, the highest peak in the area, has some of the most scenic views of the wonderful mountains surrounding us. Horseback riders particularly enjoy Record Ridge, the Dewdney, and Old Glory trails.

Golf: Golf Redstone's signature Furber design. Situated in the stunning Redstone Valley the course is predicted to rank within the top 10 resort courses in Canada upon completion. Play for the majority of 2008 is based upon the newly finished championship back nine which features stunning ridgeline views, elevated tees and a 622 yard Par 5. A soft opening of the full 18 is expected in early fall 2008. Either way you will not be disappointed!
