When the leaves start to turn colour, Eskers Provincial Park, about 20 minutes northwest of Prince George, is a beautiful place to be. I took my three dogs on the hike, and from the parking lot we first walked to the lake and marsh, enjoying the serene environment. From there we followed one of the many well-marked hiking loops up on a ridge, which revealed a lovely overview of the area. When we made it back to the truck after about two hours of hiking, I had three tuckered dogs and was glad I went.
One great thing about Eskers is that you can customize your hike both in regards to how far you want to go, and how strenuous you want it to be. Either way, you'll be rewarded with beautiful scenery and a good chance of seeing moose and bears. Eskers is also very popular for cross-country skiing because of its sloping hills and wide terrain, making it a great year-round destination
Roam plenty and roam safely,
