Winter in the park

Wells Gray Park is BC's 4th largest provincial park and is just over 1.3 million acres of pristine wilderness. It offers a variety of geological features, including extinct volcanoes, lava beds, and natural mineral springs. There are also over 38 spectacular waterfalls including Helmken, which plunges 141 meters over the edge of a volcanic plateau and the massive 90-meter span of Dawson falls.

If you enjoy marveling at all that nature has to offer, you've come to the right place! Wells Gray Park contains over 1,050 species of trees, shrubs, and flowers, 350 species of moss, 200 species of mushrooms, 56 species of mammals, and 217 species of birds.

Late June through August the awe-inspiring Trophy Mountain alpine meadows are adorned with an abundant display of brilliant wildflowers, considered one of Canada's most beautiful pristine meadows.

In early September salmon begin their journey up the Clearwater River. Watch in amazement as they try to jump the seemingly impossible rapids at Bailey's Chute. And marvel at the now brilliant orange-colored Kokanne in the shallows of Dutch Lake.
