Park in BC (JF Bergeron photo)
Two of British Columbia's largest wilderness parks, Tweedsmuir Provincial Park and Itcha Ilgachuz Provincial Park, are virtually next door to Nimpo Lake.
Nazko Lake Provincial Park is one hour east of the community. In summer, these parks are great for hiking, birdwatching, canoeing and fishing. Cross-country skiing and snowmobiling are winter options.
Tweedsmuir Provincial Park
Located 30km/18.5mi west of Anahim Lake, Tweedsmuir Provincial Park has a network of hiking trails suitable for 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.
