The Hike: The Antenna Trail is the pride and joy of a small village community about 11kms from Trail BC. The Antenna Trail winds it's way along the cliffs above the Montrose Cutoff above the Columbia River and follows the ridge down towards Waneta Mall area, then loops back towards the Village of Montrose. The village of Montrose is built on a mountain ledge leading to Beaver Valley. Because of its limited physical area, there is very little fluctuation in population.
Respect of Private Property: Sections of this well known trail may or may not intersect private land. Please be respectful of land owners, and leave no trace.
The Antenna Trail is popular because it is snow-free much earlier in the spring than the higher elevation trails, and has little if any mountain bike traffic.
The village and trail area shares its territory with a variety of native BC wildlife. Elk, Whitetail Deer, Black Bears, and Wild Turkeys are frequently spotted on Montrose Mountain, and occasionally within the village proper. Hummingbirds are attracted by the numerous feeders put out by residents, with at least 7 different species recorded.
Excellent vantage point for wildlife viewing, bird-watching, wild turkeys and all sorts of wildlife make their home in this area.
Trail-head: You will see the trail head up the bank on the right between the wooden structure and the house on the right. The trail is well maintained and easy to follow.
