    The Great Trail (formerly the Trans Canada Trail) is the world's most extensive trail network which follows the Kettle Valley Rail Trail from the north at McCulloch, downhill to Carmi and Beaverdell along the West Kettle River.

Many back roads, pristine mountains and 'champagne powder' make this area perfect for snowmobiling, snowshoeing or cross-country skiing.

    History

    Beaverdell was initially called Beaverton. When the post offices of Beaverton and nearby Rendell amalgamated, the name changed to Beaverdell. The Beaverdell Hotel, established in 1901, was Canada's longest continuously operating hotel until it burned to the ground in 2011. The hotel was a favourite stop for travellers along the Great Trail.

    Located 87 km from Kelowna on Highway 33, the Beaverdell mine was previously known as the Highland Bell Mine. Mining operations took place at the site almost continuously from the early 1900s until the mine permanently closed in 1991, and silver was the primary commodity produced. Teck Corporation Limited acquired the mine in 1969.
