Golden, BC

Ho-hum town with awesome rafting and mountain biking

Squeezed between train yards and plywood mills, much of the railroad-town and truck-stop of Golden is unattractive. But it does have all the basic hotel and restaurant amenities, and its small downtown, beside the milky Columbia River – a couple of blocks from the ribbon of dreary Hwy-1 motels and garages – has its quaint touches. Plus, of course, the mountain backdrop is glorious.

Greyhound buses connect Golden to Calgary (an 8hr drive), Banff and Vancouver, stopping beside the Esso gas Station 1402 N Trans-Canada Hwy.
