Wilderness camping

In Kitwanga Mountain Park wilderness camping is allowed, but no facilities are provided.


While campfires are allowed in this backcountry area, we encourage visitors to conserve wood and protect the environment by minimizing the use of fire and using camp stoves instead. When having fires please use dead, downed wood. Do not cut live vegetation.

The Kitwanga Mountain Trail has recently been rebuilt through a joint project by BC Parks and volunteers from Round Square International Schools at Soaring Spirits Camp. The trail is still steep, but is clear and in good condition all the way to a viewpoint at timberline. From the parking and turn around location the old road and trail are roughly 3 km long and gains 800 metres in elevation. From the top of the trail there is an excellent view of the Seven Sisters Peaks as well as up and down the Skeena Valley. The trail is also known as the Bernadine Trail and was cut and blazed by the Forest Service in the late 1970s.

Wildlife viewing

Kitwanga Mountain Park offers wildlife viewing opportunities through various habitats. There are high value grizzly bear habitats in the subalpine as well as good moose habitat. Lower elevation provides excellent migratory bird viewing opportunities.

Pets on leash

Pets and domestic animals must be on a leash at all times. You are responsible for their behaviour and must dispose of their excrement. Backcountry areas are not suitable for dogs or other pets due to wildlife issues and the potential for problems with bears.

Horseback riding

Horseback riding is permitted except on the Kitwanga Mountain Trail, as the trail is quite steep.
