This fall, start your Boundary adventure by hiking or mountain biking our trails. The Trans Canada Trail, the Kettle Valley Railway, and sections of the historic Dewdney Trail are yours to explore. You won’t find a WIFI connection, but there are other connections to be had outside. The changing colour of the trees signals the beginning of the Grand Forks Fall Fair and the Spencer Hill Orchard Harvest Festival.
Tour mile-after-mile of backcountry roads and drink in the landscapes. These vistas inspired the art you’ll see hanging at Grand Forks’ Gallery 2, and at the Christina Lake Living Arts Centre. Connect to Greenwood’s boom then bust and rebirth on a self-guided heritage stroll. Pop down to Rock Creek during the Ponderosa Festival. Discover emerging and established artists rocking it down by the Kettle River. You can also simply retreat to the shores of the Kettle and Granby Rivers. Drop in a line, connect to the land and water, and fish for Rainbow trout. No matter how you pass a warm autumn day, one thing is certain; in Boundary Country has unlimited adventures.
Wanderlust and golden dreams first lured travellers to Boundary Country. This is a mineral-rich swath of land in the Thompson-Okanagan Region of BC. It begins where the 49th parallel marks the boundary between Canada and the United States. Tranquil and timelessly Canadian landscapes of cedar, spruce, and pine forested mountains, sweep into ranch lands. Our lush, fertile valleys, are bound together by the Kettle River. It flows 282 km (185 mi) from its source in the Monashee Mountains, all the way to the community of Christina Lake.
