A short interpretive trail from the Rogers Pass Centre to the Summit Monument along the old rail route that once traveled this course through Rogers Pass. This trail is suitable for both wheelchairs and strollers. You’ll learn a little about the history of Rogers Pass on this short, flat trail that takes you along the rail grade that was abandoned in 1916. The new rail spans the most treacherous 8 kilometers of this pass through an underground tunnel far below your feet.
