The Tumbler Ridge Global Geopark is home to so many accessible waterfalls. They are a must see attraction for all visitors – some require hiking and others can be driven to – there are options for visitors of any ability!
The TRGG trail system offers over 50 self-guided hikes to various geosites. Trails are well signed and information for visitor includes level of difficulty, specific features such as waterfalls, picnicking, dinosaur footprints and geo sites, distance from community to trail head and availability of cell service. Updating of brochures, guidebooks and interpretive signage is a continual process. Self-guided hiking brochures have been developed by the local Wolverine Nordic Mountain Society (WNMS).
Aesthetically, some of the waterfalls (Kinuseo, The Cascades) are of national or international significance. The remainder are of regional or provincial import when considered alone, but considering the accessibility that has been developed for them, they are collectively a national gem.
Cross Country Skiing
Winters in Tumbler Ridge are long. Healthy outdoor exercise is feasible through cross country skiing. 10 km of Wolverine ski trails to Lost Haven Cabin are tracked and groomed. Skiing up canyons to waterfalls is a popular pastime. The route up Flatbed Canyon past Flatbed Falls to the Overhanging Rock is a favourite, and permits an appreciation of geology even in winter.
The Geopark contains numerous areas suitable for ice climbing, with many ice-falls as yet unclimbed. There is potential for the development of ice-climbing tourism businesses.
