Galena Trail to Alamo

The old K&S Railway line, built in 1895 to serve the booming silver mining town Sandon, is now a linear non-motorized recreational trail. The Galena Trail runs gradually uphill along the shore of Slocan Lake, and then heads inland alongside Carpenter Creek in to the mountains towards Alamo, Three Forks and Sandon, abandoned towns from mining boom times.

This photo looks towards New Denver from above Carpenter Creek, which can be seen far below. The mountains of Valhalla Provincial park are in the distance.
