A Walk in the Past Professional Review and Guide
"An interpretive historical walk from Kicking Horse Campground to the “Big Hill.” You will come across an abandoned narrow-gauge work engine that was used during construction of the Spiral Tunnels. In 1884, 12,000 men from across the country came to work on the Canadian Pacific Railway—building the railroad through the steep Kicking Horse Pass. This trail takes you along the worker’s old tote road from Kicking Horse Campground, once their work camp, to the pass, which was not so fondly referred to as “The Big Hill.” History or train buffs will love this trail, and even if you don’t fall into one of these classifications, you’ll find this walk interesting. It’s perfect for a rainy day."
