We will get shuttled to the Nakusp Hot springs and hike to the Winery. From the Winery AME will transport the group to their accommodation.
From the Nakusp Hot Springs we cross a beautiful newly built bridge that crosses the Kuskanax Creek. The trail meanders along the side slope above the Kuskanax Creek down to the Valley of the Springs Winery. The trail follows the pioneers’ original packhorse route of 1912-1960. The first 4 km wander through lofty cedar and hemlock stands, which thrive in the ideal moist habitat created by rain from eastbound clouds crossing the Selkirk Mountains.
Under the towering canopy exists an abundance of wild mushrooms, flora, and fauna. After approx. 3.5 hrs of hiking, we make our way to the Valley of the Springs Winery for some delicious appetizers and Nakusp locally made wine for a tour and wine tasting.
