Topographical Maps

Topographical Maps of the entire route, in tif image format, and pdf, are avaliable from Natural Resources Canada at:     © Her Majesty the Queen in Right of Canada

These maps may be of interest to those seeking more information on the topography of the area the trail goes though and may be useful in the initial planning of a trip to the area, but these maps will prove to be of little value once on the trail as compared to those in the book.

Direct links to the maps covering the Kettle Valley Railway are provided below. Each map is approximately 10 - 40 mb in size.
The abandoned railway trail is shown on these topomaps as an active railway as shown in the example below.
(Caution: The few active railways shown on these maps are also shown with the same line.)
