Reservations open for two BC Parks backcountry adventures
Reservations will soon open for two popular backcountry adventures in B.C. parks — the world-renowned Berg Lake Trail and the Bowron Lake Canoe Circuit.
Beginning at 7 a.m. (Pacific time) on Oct. 1, 2019, hikers wanting to explore the 23-kilometre trail in Mount Robson Provincial Park or paddle the multi-day canoe circuit in Bowron Lake Provincial Park can reserve sites for the 2020 season on Discover Camping.
The Berg Lake Trail has some of the best scenery in B.C., providing views of waterfalls, turquoise-coloured lakes and massive glaciers. Seven backcountry campsites are located along the wilderness trail and can be reserved from June 12 to Sept. 30, 2020.
The Bowron Lake Canoe Circuit involves 116 kilometres of paddling across 10 lakes with several portages that are relatively flat. The entire trip takes six to 10 days to complete, depending on the skill level. Those looking for a shorter trip can paddle the west side of the circuit, which takes two to four days. Campsites for the circuit can be reserved from May 15 to Sept. 23.
Reservations for long weekends fill up fast for both adventures. Due to the limited facilities in wilderness areas, visitors need to be well prepared and self-sufficient.
