The hiking trail route involves navigating some very steep sections and requires some level of fitness. But... the good news is that all is worth it because from the peak there are views of the valley below and the Smithers townsite.
The highlights of the park are the lake, 200 metre sandy beach and campground. The park measures over 40 hectares in size. The heavily forested park is popular for activities including hiking, boating, canoeing, swimming, bird watching, camping and fishing.
The Perimeter Trail is 13 kilometres long and follows the shores of the Bulkley River, Chicken Creek and Kathlyn Creek. The footpath is an excellent way to explore the many community parks and designated green space in the Smithers region.
