Monashee Provincial Park protects substantial stands of old growth cedar, spruce and hemlock. Lush green forests grace the valley bottoms and, in the spring, alpine meadows blossom with a colourful array of wildflowers. The park is also known for some of the oldest rock formations in western Canada. It is a wonderful adventure for both experienced, backcountry hikers and willing beginners alike.
Park Users must be prepared for extreme weather changes while camping and hiking in the sub-alpine areas of the park. Subzero temperatures are common.
Dogs are NOT permitted due to potential conflict with red-listed Mountain Caribou.
