Description

The 1985 Rails Trail is a hiking trail located in the Glacier National Park. Length - 3.8 km (one way) Hiking time - 1 hour (one way) Elevation range - 1190 to 1250 m (minimal change) Trailhead(s) - Illecillewaet Campground and Loop Brook Campground The 1885 Rails trail follows the original line of the CPR between Loop Brook Campground and Illecillewaet Campground. Because it is on an old railway grade, the walking is very easy. Interpretive signs along the route will relive the exciting history of the railway through Rogers Pass. Please do not follow the old railway grade above Illecillewaet Campground. This is high quality grizzly bear habitat and the parks have decided to leave this section for their undisturbed use.
