Wilderness camping is allowed, but no facilities are provided. Please pack out what you pack in.
There are no designated campsites or campfire rings on Nadina Mountain and there is no wood available on the summit plateau. It is highly recommended that hikers bring along a light cook stove.
There is a strenuous hiking route up the north east slope of Nadina Mountain. The trail leads from an old cut block outside the Park, through the forested slopes of the mountain and up to alpine. The trailhead is at 867 metre elevation and reaches alpine at 1686 metres. After reaching alpine, the trail fades away. From this point, hikers can pick their own route to the summit at 2125m. Please make careful note of the trail location so you can find it again on your way down. This is especially important if the weather changes for the worse, as visibility in this alpine area can be reduced to mere metres.
Another route up the mountain leaves from Nadina Mountain Lodge on Owen Lake. This is a longer route that visits both Klate Lake and Base Lake en route to the mountain and then climbs steeply. Trail clearing has not occurred on this route for several years making it difficult to travel.
Mountain goat are often spotted during hikes in Nadina Mountain Park.
Pets/domestic animals must be under control at all times.
The Berkey-Howe Union Spire is a free-standing granite pillar located at the head of the large cirque on the north-east exposure of Nadina Mountain. Formations like this are very rare in granite. The spire is approximately 40 m tall, and the summit is an exposed 2 m x 2 m platform (see Photo Gallery).
Hunting is allowed in the park. All hunters to the area should refer to the current BC Hunting and Trapping Regulations Synopsis.
Nadina Mountain Park is located in west-central British Columbia, approximately 42 km southwest of Houston. Access to the Park follows a radio controlled logging road; public vehicles are permitted, but please proceed with caution and be aware that loaded logging trucks have the right of way.
Please note: A vehicle with generous clearance is required to travel the road after Owen Lake.
History: The name Na-di-na Mountain first appeared on the 1879 Geological Survey of Canada map of BC & NWT. Nadina means "standing up alone" in the Wet’suwet’en language, referring to the prominent, solitary aspect of the mountain.
This park is one of seven new parks and protected areas resulting from the Morice Land and Resource Management Plan (LRMP) and associated government-to-government discussions with the Office of the Wet’suwet’en. Legislation of the park occurred in July, 2008.
