FIND THE PATHS LESS TRAVELLED
Whether you’re up for a gentle walk or a remote, multi-day backcountry trek, the trail options are endless in Northeast BC.
For a gentle hike, the accessible boardwalks and trails in Ancient Forest/Chun T’oh Whudujut Provincial Park is the destination. Here, visitors can get up close to 2,000-year-old western red cedar trees that stretch to the sky. While in Tumbler Ridge, dozens of hikes take you from cascading waterfalls to the edge of towering escarpments, through boulder gardens, and into the remote alpine.
While road tripping the Alaska Highway, hikers can lace up their boots and easily find trails to stretch the legs. Paths wind through Stone Mountain provincial park, with options from short 5-km (3-mi) hike to longer, multi-day 35-km (22-mi) treks—all with breathtaking views of the Northern Rockies. While in Muncho Lake Provincial Park, visitors don’t want to miss the 1.5-km (0.9-mi) Trout River Mineral Lick walking loop to see the wildlife licking the minerals. Another must-hike is along the riverbeds of Baba and Boulder canyons to see ancient rock formations.
There are plenty of hiking trails scattered all over Northeast BC and visitors are spoilt for choice, with gentle trails in community parks, long wanders along lakes and rivers, or rugged multi-day treks.
