Eskers Park is a day-use park located 40km northwest of Prince George. Encompassing 3,979 hectares of gently rolling terrain and many small lakes, the park conserves a portion of the 40km long Stuart River Eskers Complex. These unique land forms, for which the park is named, are long sinuous gravel ridges. They were created when sand and gravel were deposited in the meltwater channels of ancient glaciers that once blanketed this northern region.
Visitors can enjoy walking and hiking, canoeing, fishing, nature study and wildlife viewing. In the winter the summer hiking trails are turned into an excellent network for snowshoeing and cross-country skiing enthusiasts. A 3km beginners loop is located just off the Pine Marsh parking area. For an additional challenge and exercise, skiers can enjoy the 6km trail to Kathie Lake.
