Spots to See in a Snap!

Just passing through and looking for something to do or somewhere to stretch your legs? We have you covered if you only have a short time in Radium Hot Springs.


Road trips with kids can be tough. Radium has plenty of spaces for them to run off their energy!

Main Park

Hit up Main Park, one block off Main Street. The playground is designed for 2-12 year olds with a variety of equipment. Take the path down to Legend’s Field for plenty of green space. There are also picnic tables at the park and around Legend’s Field to eat in the fresh air.

Sinclair Creek

Take a stroll or pedal around Sinclair Creek if you have bikes or running shoes packed. Mostly flat with a wide, gravel path it’s perfect for the whole family. The Pump and Jump track, located beside the creek trail, is ideal for kids to burn a few laps. 

Restless rover

Head to the off-leash Sinclair Creek trail, a 2km loop that runs alongside the creek. There are educational signs along the trail sharing the history of the area. Dogs are allowed on other trails in Radium Hot Springs and Kootenay National Park, but leashes are required.

Stretch and stroll

Feeling antsy after driving? Visit the trails in town to get those legs moving!

Try the Juniper trail, accessible from a parking lot just inside the Kootenay National Park gate. Check out the waterfall, mountain views, and Douglas Fir forests.

The Valley View trail conveniently starts behind the Visitor Centre, goes up a steep staircase, and leads to beautiful views of Radium Hot Springs and the Purcell Mountains.

Find our list of easy hikes here.

If a gentle stretch is more your style, stop and smell the roses at the Radium Rotary Gardens.

Hungry holidayer

Radium Hot Springs has many delicious choices for dine-in or takeout meals.

Grabbing takeout? Drive just south of Radium to the pull-offs overlooking the Columbia Valley Wetlands and Purcell Mountains for a refreshing break.

We hope you enjoy your stop in Radium. Plan for a longer visit next time by checking out the accommodators and activities!
