Drive east on Hwy #1 to Giant Cedars Boardwalk trail in Mount Revelstoke National Park, a great destination for all ages with an easy 2km loop on a beautiful boardwalk that winds through old growth interior rain forest.
Head back towards Revelstoke and then north on hwy 23 for an afternoon on Lake Revelstoke. One of our favorite places to bring a picnic lunch or dinner is Martha Creek Provincial Park, 17 km away on Hwy 23N. There is a pebbly beach with a large shoreline to explore and a great playground with mountain scenery that can’t be beat. The water is cool and clear and mighty refreshing on a hot day. Stop in at the Revelstoke Dam on route!
After dinner, watch the sun set from the greenbelt. There are a variety of easy trails that offer great views of the surrounding mountains and rivers.
Drive west on Hwy #1 to SkyTrek and The Enchanted Forest. The Enchanted forest brings fairy tales alive and is a fun experience for the whole family, especially the younger kids. SkyTrek has an amazing variety of challenging and exhilarating activities for kids and adults.
Spend the heat of the day at our local beach at Williamson Lake, located just a few kms from town. It has a nice small sandy beach and a dock to swim from. There is also a small store that can do a BBQ lunch. It features a new playground and beach volleyball courts. SUP boards are also available to rent on site.
Get out of the sun and into your car to take a drive into the sky. The views that can be seen from the top of Mount Revelstoke are definitely worth the 26km drive up. There is a variety of short (or long) trails to choose from that will suit all capabilities, but will still reward each visitor with spectacular views of our surrounding mountain ranges.
After dinner, enjoy the free music entertainment happening every evening in Grizzly Plaza.
