Visitors can soon start booking trips to two popular BC Parks backcountry destinations — Berg Lake trail and the Bowron Lake canoe circuit.
Beginning at 9 a.m. on Jan. 2, 2016, those looking to hike the scenic Berg Lake trail in Mount Robson Provincial Park or paddle the pristine Bowron Lake canoe circuit in Bowron Lake Provincial Park can reserve a spot for the 2016 season through Discover Camping.
Advanced preparation is required for both the Berg Lake Trail and Bowron Lake canoe circuit because of the type of backcountry experience involved. Bowron Lake Provincial Parks’ world-renowned canoe circuit can be reserved from May 15 to Sept. 21. The entire circuit boasts 116 kilometres of paddling across 10 lakes, and includes several portages that are relatively flat. The entire trip takes from six to 10 days.
The West Side experience is also available, which is less than half of the circuit and takes two to four days to complete.
