Fort St. John provides amazing terrain for both challenging wilderness hikes and leisurely strolls.

Trek through the only open prairie region in British Columbia, surrounded by the bio-diverse Boreal White and Black Spruce Zone, the towering Rocky Mountains, and the deep valleys of Peace River Country. Traverse the steep uncut slopes of the Peace and Beatton rivers, or stick to developed trails in and around town. Extend a day of hiking into a night of camping at either of Fort St. John's two provincial parks.
