Parks and Trails

Discover a world of mountain peaks, cascading waterfalls, sweeping grassland, sun-drenched beaches and abundant wildlife. Take your time and explore our parks and trails. The natural wonders you’ll find here may make it hard to decide where to go first!

Parks Full of Natural Wonders

With Provincial, regional, and community parks stretching from Westbridge to Rock Creek and from Midway to Christina Lake, natural wonders aren’t so far out of bounds in Boundary Country.

Savour the wide-open spaces and bask in the quiet of the wilderness. Windsurf Conkle Lake Provincial Park when the southerlies are blowing. Explore the Galloping Hills where wildflower meadows burst into colour in summer. Paddle in ancient fishing grounds. Look for age-old pictographs at several places along the north-east lakeshore of Christina Lake. Take a week, or maybe more. Explore our pristine and protected areas from one end of Boundary Country to the other.
