Juniper Loop trail at Sinclair Canyon

The Juniper Loop trail is an easy-ish trail that will take you on a loop around the Sinclair Canyon at the edge of Kootenay National Park in the Canadian Rockies. We love the views from the North side of the trail when you can peek down to the Columbia Valley and possibly see wild bighorn sheep. You can start and end the trail at Raduim hot springs, so when the pandemic is over – you’d be able to finish this…

It’s only 2.6km hike in each direction, but you get to cross the crazily blue Kootenay River and finish at a perfect picturesque mountain lake. If you like pretty suspension bridges, easy hikes and swimming in a beautiful lake, you’ll probably love this mini adventure. Also, if you are lucky, Dog Lake itself can turn into a giant mirror, reflecting the beautiful Mitchell Range of mountains…
