A gem of a trail right in Radium with super easy access. The trail from the lower parking lot is relatively flat as it follows the banks of Sinclair Creek in a 2 km loop that crosses the creek with bridges in 2 places. Interpretive signs tell of restoration efforts, salmon spawning and irrigation work in the past. This is an off leash area for dogs. There are 2 picnic tables close to the lower parking lot and several benches along the way. A nice oasis which is perfect for an afternoon picnic. Add another 2 km and 40 - 60 metres in elevation gain/loss by hiking the offshoots that go to Rotary Park or the residential area to the north.
Set your odometer to zero at the traffic lights on Highway 93/95 at the Invermere junction. Head north for 13 km to Radium. Turn left at the 4 way stop in Radium. Park at Rotary Park to your immediate right, or to continue on to the lower parking lot, turn right at the 3 way fork at 14.5 km. Then turn left at 15 km and proceed to the parking lot 15.4 km.
