I can hardly believe that such a beautiful wilderness is located so close to the city. Whether you want to bike,hike,walk or bird watch. This is the place. Just be bear aware and recently cougars have been sighted in the area.

Forest, marsh and rocky outcrops make this regional park a gem to explore any time of year. The network of quiet trails are great places to hike and watch for wildlife. It is also home to Minnekhada Lodge, a 1930s country estate with spectacular views...More

Great hiking trails to the high or low knoll lookouts! Watch for the small toads on the trails in August and black bears in summer. It’s a great wilderness escape and you feel like you’re miles away from civilization.

This park has a wide variety scenic elements in a fairly small area: trails overlooking swamps, forests, high points with lookouts. Lots of birds. Good exerccise as there are lots of terrain changes.

Hi, Alex. There is only a small marshy area - with no fishing - within the park, but the east side of the park borders on Pitt River, which has good fishing. Don't forget your BC fishing license!
