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.

Hitching out

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.

South to Radium Hot Springs (Cranbrook) on Hwy 95
