North Star Rails to Trails
The 25 km long North Star Rails to Trails links Kimberley to south Cranbrook on a converted railway bed. This year round, multi-use (non-motorized only) trail offers gentle grades in both directions allowing for families to enjoy the fantastic scenery together. Bikers, walkers, skateboarders, roller bladers and cross country skiers will all enjoy this jewel of the local trail network. The trail head is located across Rotary Drive from the Kimberley Civic Centre arena and there are numerous easy access points along the entire trail, allowing users choose any distance of excursion.
