5 minutes from our lodging you can explore Jackman Flats Provincial Park, in the vicinity of Tete Jaune Cache BC. Jackman Flats Provincial Park has been created out of ice and wind. Some 11,000 years ago, at the end of the last ice age, winds from the trench of the Fraser River and from Kinbasket Lake, deposited vast quantities of sand in the Jackman Flats area. The park features an ecosystem considered unique in British Columbia. Shifting sand dune structures and very rare plants now exist in this rather small park. Excellent opportunities exist for bird watching and plant identification. Along the different trails you can choose from you will find interesting interpretive signs that tells you about the many different lichens. The parks most prominent pants are the variety of lichen species that dominate the landscape.
Jackman Flats offers a variety of different trails that can be combined with each other, featuring stunning views at the mountains and fauna. During the winter time the visitor can enjoy groomed cross country ski trails. Mount Robson Provincial Park is just located another 5 minutes from Jackman Flats and our lodging accommodation.
