Grand Forks (pop. 3,985) is Boundary Country’s largest city. The Trans Canada Trail and the Kettle and Granby Rivers all converge in Grand Forks. This urban enclave is nestled in a lush, broad valley flanked by the Monashee Mountains and mile after mile of rolling farmlands. It’s where the enduring stories of farmers, prospectors, Doukhobors and up-and-coming baseball players reveal themselves in nearby pastures, the geode rich fields of Rock Candy Mine, at the Boundary Museum, and on the pitcher’s mound at the annual Grand Forks Invitational. The timeless architecture of our downtown core invites a stroll into the galleries and shops that anchor our vibrant arts scene. Then there’s the Trans-Canada Trail, and the Kettle and Granby Rivers which beckon you outdoors no matter the season. The Columbia and Western Railway (C&W) and Vancouver, Victoria and Eastern Railway (VV&E) wind through the heart of Grand Forks. They are part of a 240 km (149 mi) section of the Trans Canada Trail.
