Heading west out of Greenwood on what was once known, as Dewdney Trail is the Trans Canada Trail parallel to Highway #3.
Between Midway and Greenwood you can see old ruins of log cabins and other lingering remains of the Dewdney Trail along the historic trail clinging to the rocky bluffs, before it disappears into the valley hanging at Boundary Falls.
Boundary Falls was once the site of a bustling town with one of three smelters in the Boundary Mining District. Boundary Falls used to be a hydroelectric dam built and used by the City of Greenwood until 1921. Successful development of the West Kootenay Power building as a Mining and Power Interpretive Centre, adjacent to the Lotzkar Park smelter ruins, will tell of the mining history in smelting of copper ores and itís world demand, the establishment of electrical power, and the railway transportation.
