Well, with B.C Day coming up, I figured I’d look at one of the province’s lesser known parks. Pinnacles Provincial Park is in the centre of the province, on the outskirts of the town of Quesnel. The park, founded in 1969, is fairly small. The highlight of the park is a fairly easy trail along the ridge of a valley(It’s a steep drop, but the edge is fenced off). From this trail, visitors have an excellent view of the town of Quesnel(2D Photo).
As the name implies, however, the real attraction in the park(and the reason for the park’s existence) is the hoodoos below the trail. Hoodoos aren’t unheard of in central BC, but they aren’t very common either.
The ‘Pinnacles’ of the park are only about a kilometre along the trail (Like I said; it’s a small park). The trail is fairly wide, and mostly wheelchair accessible.
The creek below isn’t accessible for wheelchairs or hikers, as far as I know(I’m sure there are some small trails that go up it, as that’s normal for this area, but I don’t know where the trailhead is)
The park is too small to spend a day hiking, but it’s a good break when driving Highway 97- it is only about 10 minutes to drive from the highway to the park, although it is a little difficult to find without a map.
So, to most Canadian reading this, Happy BC Day, or whatever your province calls the long weekend.
