Mount Revelstoke National Park is a place of contrasts. Take a drive along the Meadows in the Sky parkway through a variety of geographical zones. From dense old-growth rainforest of giant cedar and pine, travel up through subalpine forest, and finally alpine meadows and tundra. Marvel at the spectacular view of the ice-clad peaks of the Monashee Mountains and, to the east, the Selkirk Mountains. The Giant Cedars hiking trail takes you through a stand of ancient Western Red Cedars, and the Skunk Cabbage Boardwalk trail introduces you to jungle-like wetland, a birder's paradise. Experience the range and variety of the Columbia Mountains Natural Region while exploring Mount Revelstoke National Park. Travel from valley bottom old-growth interior rainforest on the Giant Cedars Nature Trail, or lush wetland along the Skunk Cabbage Nature Trail, up the Meadows-in-the-Sky Parkway to the mountaintop experience of the summit of Mount Revelstoke. Winter is the dominant season and lingers on the summit until July or even August. During the brief summer, the mountaintop explodes into colour when its wildflower meadows bloom in mid-August. In winter, a profound silence envelopes the mountain as snow accumulates to depths of four or five metres and more. May 16 - June 12 9:00 am

Easy peasy but beautiful.

We did this short hike and a few others to break up a drive.

Enjoyed spotting birds and frogs!

I don't know why this is rated moderate, it was a really easy walk. Its not like we are incredibly fit people either!

It was a nice hike. If you are looking for something easy to stretch your legs. The let down is hearing the traffic near by :(

Super balade sans dénivelé (ou presque). Poursuivre jusqu'à Eva lake est indispensable

very grueling and steep. If you can manage the hike up the rewards start at about the 5k mark with a detour to the left to see a beautiful waterfall. then at the 6k mark there is a campsite with beautiful meadows and a small lake with another waterfall behind. absolutely stunning! another 1.5k and we finally reached the glacier which was really interesting. a long day but well worth the sore legs. took us 7 hours total but we stopped a lot to take pics and just take it all in.

Fantastic drive with excellent views! One of the easiest ways to see a fantastic view. 1km walk to the view if you're there after the shuttle stops. Highly recommend.

A very pleasant hike through shady forest ending with a beautiful lake that would be good for a refreshing cool dip. A short sidetrip to Eva lake was very worth it (a signpost marks the turn) The sidetrail was fairly level to it.

great shady trail. well built wooden staircases and boardwalks keep us from trampling the lush and delicate natural beauty on this trail.
