In Northern BC, where the snow falls fast and furious, snowshoeing is the perfect way to explore nature.

Snowshoers will find trails in the vicinity of Prince George, in Eskers Provincial Park and near Smithers, with stunning winter scenery and wildlife-viewing opportunities.

Snowshoeing in Eskers Provincial Park

Explore 15km/9.3mi of snow-covered hiking trails in Eskers Provincial Park, a day-use park of gently rolling terrain and small lakes.

Try a 4km/2.4mi beginner's loop, located just off the Pine Marsh parking area or, for an additional challenge, tackle the 6km/3.7mi trail to Kathie Lake. Finish the day by warming up in the shelter at Pine Marsh. All trails are ungroomed and are shared with cross-country skiers. Eskers Provincial Park is a 40km/24.8mi drive northwest from Prince George.
