Sinclair Creek

The Sinclair Creek Greenway

sinclairThis greenway is located midway along the Upper Columbia River Valley, in the village of Radium Hot Springs. In 2002, Greenways began work on restoration of trout and kokanee salmon habitat within Sinclair Creek, with funds from the Pacific Salmon Foundation, Slocan Forest Products Ltd. (SFP), and the BC Ministry of Transportation.

The habitat rehabilitation prescriptions were implemented with the approval of the Province in September 2003. The Village of Radium, Canfor, the Rotary Club of Radium Hot Springs Sunrise, local businesses, and civic volunteers then collaborated with Greenways to establish the Sinclair Creek Greenway trail onsite. This nature trail, completed in 2006, offers recreation, interpretive education and spectacular sight-seeing. Onsite interpretive panels installed in 2008 highlight the importance of this riparian habitat, as well as the settlement history of this region.
