A new Slocan Valley company is opening up new trails in the region.

New company opens up Slocan Valley bike trips

This spring there is a new mountain bike shuttle service offering trips into the Slocan Valley’s little known bike trails.

This spring there is a new mountain bike shuttle service offering trips into the Slocan Valley’s little known bike trails.

Footsteps Eco Adventures is equipped with a sturdy 15 passenger van with a roof rack for 10 bikes. Owner/operator Leah Brown has been running shuttles and tours in the valley and wants to bring attention to the spectacular riding there.

Footsteps bike shuttles are a great way to ride with friends as well as meeting new biking partners. The shuttles will visit a new trail each week, and the group will choose according to their dynamic.

Some examples of trails she will visit are Pass Creek’s Goose Creek trail, Passmore’s the Duke, Lemon Creek trails, Idaho peak’s Wakefield and Choices, and Kaslo’s Monster.

Brown had gone on bike shuttles from Nelson and loved it, but realized there were none to the valley. Footsteps is a valley-based business, and most hiking, kayaking and biking tours operate there.

In addition, Footsteps offers group trips to local bike parks such as Silver Star, Fernie and Kicking Horse resorts. There are cross country tours available such as Champion Lakes and the Galena trail. Brown is open to private charters as well.

Shuttle days will begin in May (weather permitting). The price per person will be $15-20, depending on the trail and the number of participants.

Meeting point will be at the junction park and ride of Highway 3A and 6. Footsteps can provide a guide to lead tours or trips can be self guided.

For more information contact Brown at 250-505-6727 or email info@footstepsecoadventures.com. Check out the website at footstepsecoadventures.com for more information on adventure tours and see the exciting summer calendar of events.
