The city of Trail is situated within the West Kootenay region of British Columbia's south central interior. The city of Trail is made up of an area, reaching 13.43 sq mi. or 34.78 square kilometres. The city is situated along the banks of the Columbia River, just 10 km north of the Washington State border. This part of the Columbia River valley is situated between the Monashee Mountains to the west and the Selkirk Mountains to the east. The Columbia flows directly north-south from Castlegar, turns east near downtown Trail, and next meets the United States-Canada border at Waneta and the Pend d'Oreille River.

The Monashee Mountains are the first major mountain range east the Coastal Mountains to intercept moisture laden westerly flow from the Pacific Ocean. Therefore, parts west of Trail, like the Rossland Range, the Christina Range, Rossland City, and the Blueberry-Paulson section of the Crowsnest Highway (Highway 3) receive more amounts of winter precipitation, mostly in the form of heavy snow. Vegetation in the Trail part, although rather lush, is noticeably drier compared to various regions with a more westerly aspect.

Tech Cominco is the largest company in the area, employing approximately 1,800 individuals. Cominco's Trail operation has an average worker age of 47, meaning that over the next 15 or so years, there would be an entirely different workforce. A younger and possibly more technical labour force would most probably replace people who are retiring. The big picture for the area is one of an aging population which causes ongoing work possibilities within the area. This is evidence based on the improved housing sales during the years between 2005 to 2007, making the Greater Trail region a target destination for people in search of better lifestyle within a smaller community scenery.

The City of Trail is also home to the biggest hospital within the West Kootenay region.

The small city of Rossland is located in the West Kootenay area of British Columbia. The city is tucked high in the Monashee Mountains at an elevation of 1023 metres or 3410 feet. Population nowadays is approximately 3500; a number that fluctuates from season to season. The population is at its peak during the winter. But back in 1897, because of a gold rush, the city of Rossland for a time was amongst the biggest cities within Western Canada.

The village of Fruitvale is located within the West Kootenay area of south-eastern British Columbia. It is around sixteen km east of Trail City on Highway 3B.

The small village of Montrose is located within the West Kootenay region of south-eastern British Columbia. The village of Montrose sits along Highway 3B, practically 7 km east of Trail.
