So close to the Ferry and not go for a ride? Do the "Loop" and come back via Creston and drive the breath taking Kootenay Pass (Creston - Salmo)

WOW! Easily one of the best beaches on Kootenay Lake. A little bit of a local secret and a bit tricky to find. Go to the end of Meadow St, park, walk towards the beach, turn left, walk 50 m up the lake and you'll find the trail in the trees. Now, you have another 100m walk and you'll start to see the beaches. We like the second one. Well worth the few extra meters. ENJOY
