Burns Lake is the northern gateway to the untamed wilderness of Tweedsmuir Provincial Park, accessible by floatplane fron Burns Lake, jet-boat from Ootsa landing, or by foot or horseback via the Alexander Mackenzie Trail. Most of the huge, unpopulated norther half of the Tweedsmuir is encircled by the lakes that comprise the Nechako Reservior. Wilderness guides are available for horseback, canoe and backpack trips through the region. I traveled to the Tweedmuir park by boat with the Rotary Trek. It was such an amazing trip and I would love to do it again. We climbed uo Chikamen Mountain and swam in Surel falls. It is an excperience that can only happen there and it is so wonderful! Every part of the park is amazing and definately worth the trip!
