At a Glance

Historic Fort Steele was a busy outpost for the North West Mounted Police, predecessors to Canadaís beloved Revenue Collecting Motorized Patrol. Times have changed, however, so you wonít be outriding any galloping redcoats on your Indian Chief-- new or old. Sadly, the horses have been retired to the Musical Ride, replaced by somewhat faster methods of pursuit. But at least the Mounties have moved down the road to Cranbrook, to better tax the inter-provincial wagon train of RVs, cars and trucks going to and from the Crowsnest Pass. This forgotten DH lies between the Steeples Mountains and the Kootenay River. Though straight in sections, itís nonetheless memorable for its striking scenery and lack of development. A modern-day trip on the road to Fort Steele offers a world of less traffic, fewer speed tax collectors, and more horsepower. Now, thatís what we call progress.
