About Westbridge

Click edit button to change this text.


Westbridge lies near the fork of the West Kettle and Kettle Rivers, just south of the road bridge crossing the West Kettle River.  This small community is mostly home to ranchers and although there was once a store here,  it is no longer operating.

However, you can get supplies from nearby Rock Creek to the south, or just up the trail at The Old Cowboy Ranch.  Westbridge trail access is on the south side of the bridge off a gravel road.

This area has become very popular for “tubing” and “floating” on those hot summer days!  Most local services in Rock Creek carry float tubes you can purchase, or just watch for a good swimming hole and jump in!

Watch for Paul Lautard’s War Memorial heading north just 7 km from Westbridge.  You will see the caboose on Blythe-Rhone road on your left – ring the bell and Paul will come say hello and regal you with stories of the trail.
