Meadows in the Sky
An amazing hike into the alpine! Open meadows with wildflowers scattered throughout, crystal clear lakes. A magical place. The trailhead is a short drive from Cameron Ridge Bungalows, the hiking trail itself takes a couple hours to the meadows.
A natural mineral lick high in the mountains above Quesnel Lake where many a caribou may be spotted. Explore the old cabin of Betty Frank’s. This hike is a mile further through the Meadows in the Sky and will take a day to do.
Hike from Cameron Ridge Bungalows up to a small lake shaped as a boomerang, hence the name. The view takes in Mt Spranger towards the east. This hike will take a day.
Skunk Cabbage, Old Growth Forest, the Slide
Hiking through the old growth forest amongst the giant Cedar, Douglas Fir, Englemann Spruce and Hemlock is indescribable. The serenity, the peacefulness of hiking amongst giants is memorable. The hiking trail takes you through a patch of skunk cabbage with enormous leaves rarely seen in the interior. The slide is an avalanche shoot, with beautiful wildflowers and vegetation. Eat lunch under a massive Cedar, where on occasion one can view grizzly bears, caribou, moose or black bear grazing or travelling through.
Other than the Cameron Ridge Hiking Trail, it is recommended hiring a guide.
