We’re excited to share this article that Earth Magazine has just published on the Tumbler Ridge Global Geopark’s history. They do a great job of highlighting our many attractions.
“For the more adventurous, there is the hike to see the Stone Corral. Identified in 1999 and subsequently added to the area’s Monkman Provincial Park (which falls within the geopark), it’s an example of a glacial tarn surrounded by vertical limestone cliffs. Along the hike, you will see small caves and other limestone formations, plants, fossils, and some amazing views. It has a considerable elevation gain, so it can be strenuous in spots and it may not be suitable for smaller children.”
“There are no direct commercial flights into Tumbler Ridge, which is about a 13-hour drive from Vancouver, B.C. However, Air Canada and WestJet fly from Vancouver into nearby Fort St. John, and from there, it is about a two-hour drive to Tumbler Ridge.”
