Located where the Kootenay highway crosses the Vermilion River, the imaginatively named Vermillion Crossing picnic area doesn't disappoint with scenery. The picnic tables are located on the banks of the emerald Vermilion River, with views of it disappearing into a canyon after passing under highway 93.

This picnic area has picnic tables, a picnic shelter, and pit toilets on site. Across the highway is the trailhead for the Hawk Ridge Route in case you feel like going for a hike after your picnic.
