Description
Waypoints (0)

This is a short trail from a parking area along Meadow in the Sky road up to the summit of Mount Revelstoke. Mount Revelstoke National Park is a place of contrasts and offers the chance to explore the rugged Columbia Mountains. Mount Revelstoke's trails range from short, valley-bottom strolls along the pathways, to steep, tough climbs. Some trails offer spectacular panoramic views of mountains from sub-alpine meadows lush with wildflowers, while others wind through stands of old-growth cedar-hemlock forests. The paved trail takes you through a sub-alpine meadow. Signs provide information about this fragile area where winter lasts up to nine months of the year. A point of interest is the Icebox, a shaded rock cleft where snow persists throughout the summer. This trail is at its best in late July and early August when the wildflower blooming season is at its peak. Trailhead is at the summit of Mt. Revelstoke, a 25 km drive from the town of Revelstoke.

Good little walk through the woods up to the summit of Mt. Revelstoke with great views of the valley.

Kanada, wie man es sich vorstellt. Schöne, sehr kurze Wanderwege, die sich absolut lohnen. In der direkten Umgebung ist auch noch eine längere Wanderung möglich, die wir leider nicht geschafft haben, da wir sehr spät in dem Park gekommen sind. Selbst bei Regen und wenig Aussicht sehr lohnenswert.
