Kokanee Glacier Provincial Park
A hike to the glacier is a must! Although the road is not accessible during the winter months.
- a beautiful alpine park with glaciers , flowered meadows - challenging mountain trails , mountain lakes and streams
“A good insight into the rip-snortin' mining history of this area. Around 1896 Sandon was a thriving city of +5,000 people, now it is a ghost town.”
“Located north of Nelson, ruggedly beautiful Kokanee Glacier Park offers excellent backcountry adventure for the whole family. Sitting mostly above 1,800 metres in elevation, the park has two glaciers – Kokanee and Woodbury – which feed over 30 lakes and are the headwaters of many creeks.”
“One of the most popular hikes, Idaho Peak offers views like no other! Make it to the top and check out the lookout tower. Fairly easy hike and views of New Denver Glacier, peaks and lake. Road to parking is an easy drive in the Summer when it’s dry.”
