Park in BC (JF Bergeron photo)
At the western end of what is known as the National Parks Corridor, Revelstoke is blessed with one national treasure at the edge of town and another within an hour's drive.
In addition, there are three smaller, family-friendly provincial parks nearby.
Mount Revelstoke National Park
Mount Revelstoke National Park is exceptional in that it protects a rare tract of interior rainforest. Relying on a warm, moist air flow off the Pacific, stands of cedar and hemlock flourish on the steep mountainsides in the park. The park provides essential habitat for a herd of mountain caribou, along with mountain goats and a grizzly bear population.
The TransCanada Highway passes through the southeastern corner of the park, making motorized access extremely easy. Follow the Meadows in the Sky Parkway from the valley bottom almost to the summit, and then either walk or take a shuttle bus to the top.

Home to Canada's only inland cedar-hemlock rainforest, Mount Revelstoke is the only national park in Canada where you can summit a mountain five minutes from your vehicle. Visitors are invited to stroll amongst giants on the Giant Cedars & Skunk Cabbage boardwalks, or enjoy a panoramic view & meadows of subalpine wildflowers from the summit of Mount Revelstoke. Cycling enthusiasts can try riding 26 km (1600 m elevation gain) up the Meadows in the Sky Parkway. During the winter months outdoors enthusiasts can explore the Meadows in the Sky Parkway on skis or snowshoes.
