TCT Hiking: Waldie Island Trail to Brilliant (Hiking Only 3.9 km)
The Waldie Island Trail portion of this segment is designated as "hiking only". The Waldie Island Trail was developed in 1996 by Walter Volovsek and Castlegar Friends of Parks and Trails to reclaim the historical heritage of this important stretch of the Columbia River and to introduce to the hiker the intricacies of the surrounding riparian ecosystem. This trail goes through a protected Blue Heron bird sanctuary known as the Waldie Island Heron reserve. No bikes are allowed on this trail and dog-owners are requested to prevent dogs from disturbing birds by keeping them on leash or close by. This is particularly important for Blue Heron population recovery in this area. <a href="http://www.friendsoftrails.org/">Castlegar Friends of Parks and Trails</a>
