Top National Parks Activities in Spring.
Revelstoke is famed for having huge snowfalls in the winter, which means that our spring melt out is epic. Spring is the best time of year for waterfalls, rainforest hikes, and many Revy locals' favorite pastime - trying to cram as many sports as possible into a single day. Here are some great ideas for what to do with your FREE National Park Pass as the trails become snow free:
1. Visit the historic Nels Nelsen Ski Jump.
You can step into "Nels' Knickers" in an interactive art piece erected on the site of the historic ski jumps.
2. Hike the Inspiration Woods Trail.
In lower Mount Revelstoke National Park, the Inspiration Woods trail will give you an outstanding forest bathing experience.
3. Admire the views.
Depending on snow levels, you can drive to a number of view points on the Meadows in the Sky Parkway. These can be accessed by car, foot, or bike. The parkway opens in phases as the snow melts. There are 7 viewpoints along the way which offer sweeping views on a clear day.
4. Experience the giant cedars.
The Giant Cedars Boardwalk opens May 21 and offers serene encounters with towering 500 year old cedar trees.
5. Picnic at The Skunk Cabbage Day Use Area.
Listen to the roar of the Illecillewaet River in its spring flood while you eat lunch. The picnic area opens May 21, the boardwalk itself is closed until further notice for maintenance.
