Crowsnest Highway: Osoyoos to Castlegar

Why Travel from Osoyoos to Castlegar?

This 249 km (3 hours) stretch of the Crowsnest Highway #3 passes through rugged and scenic parts of southern British Columbia, called Boundary Country. This route passes through many mountain towns, ski towns, lakeside resort towns, or forestry towns close to the Canada-US border.

Osoyoos Area

Crowsnest Route #3 of the Trans-Canada Highway in BC

Heading east from Highway 97, you pass through Osoyoos’ main tourist street, with accommodation, dining, and retail, which as it approaches Lake Osoyoos turns into a causeway over the lake. As you climb up the east side of the lake, you pass the Nk’Mip Winery, owned by the Osoyoos First Nation (they also own a golf course and an RV Park there, too).

Osoyoos Lookout

Heading east from Osoyoos, Highway 3 snakes around as it navigates very rugged terrain. You climb to Anarchist Summit 1236 m (4055 ft) with the Anarchist Protected Area north of the highway. Then you climb to Osoyoos Lookout on the westbound side, and a few kilometres further (23 km from Osoyoos) a rest area with picnic tables eastbound, and a rest area /brake check area westbound, another 1.5 km east is a Striding Sasquatch Statue. The highway then begins to drop elevation a bit.

Kettle River

At Rock Creek, the highway follows the eastward path of the Kettle River (and the Kettle River Recreation Area is just to the north of town). Then it passed the town of Greenwood and the Phoenix Mountain Ski Area, before heading north and then back south to Grand Forks just north of the Canada-USA border.

Castlegar Area

Castlegar is a good pitstop on this stretch of the Crowsnest Highway. To the NE of Castlegar is the hippy town of Nelson which lies on the West Arm of Kootenay Lake and has stunning views of the Kokanee Glacier to the north of town. Kaslo is also nearby, and if the highway is ever blocked by avalanche, there is a year-round ferry on the Lake that crosses to just north of Creston.To the south of Castlegar are the towns of Trail and Rossland, known for the Red Mountain Ski Resort (home of Olympic skier Nancy Green).
