Golden, BC is a small town nestled in the Rocky Mountain Trench. The area can be pretty treacherous in the winter, and during the summer there is a lot of road construction. The area is really beautiful. Golden is located at the northern edge of the Kootenay Region which can be easily accessed via Hwy-95.
East to Lake Louise (Calgary) on Hwy-1
West to Revelstoke (Kamloops) on Hwy-1
Hitchhiking the Trans-Can out of golden, in both directions is made pretty easy by the fact that there is quite a bit of commercial frontage, with service roads on both sides of the Highway.
