Park in BC (JF Bergeron photo)
Anahim Lake provides easy access to two of British Columbia's most pristine wilderness parks: Tweedsmuir Provincial Park and Itcha Ilgachuz Provincial Park.
In summer, enjoy hiking and birdwatching along trails and canoeing lakes and rivers. In winter, the focus shifts to cross-country skiing and snowmobiling. Both parks have designated fishing and outfitting areas.
Tweedsmuir Provincial Park
Located 30km/18.5mi west of Anahim Lake, Tweedsmuir Provincial Park has a network of hiking trails suitable to all levels of fitness and experience: The Precipice Trail plunges down the leading edge of the Bella Coola Valley, while the Alexander Mackenzie Heritage Trail is steeped in culture and history. Rainbow Range Trail passes through startling multi-hued mountainsides.
