grizzly bear.

Information

The drive into Tumbler Ridge on Highway 52 or
Highway 29 is a visual experience in itself. Take in
the scenery, but keep an eye out for wildlife on
the highways and drive carefully. You know when
you're getting close to Tumbler Ridge when you
start climbing into mountainous country. The word
most used to describe the descent to the town-
site is "enchanting", likening it to a mountain
resort. Reference guides for our trail network and
community can be picked up at the Visitor Centre,
Town Hall or the Community Centre.
This is a fascinating area for birders, where
eastern and western range species of the
Northern Rockies converge. A checklist of the 231
species that have been recorded is available at
the Visitor Centre and Community Centre, along
with information about the forest and wetland sites.
The Murray River is a fantastic river for canoeing
or riverboating. From Kinuseo Falls, it is a 52
kilometre paddle downstream to Tumbler Ridge.
The river is graded as a Class 2 with flat sections
interrupted by gentle rapids. You can put your
boat in at the Murray River Bridge on Highway
29, just a few kilometres from Tumbler Ridge.
Riverboat tours are available upstream to Kinuseo
Falls or downstream through the Painted Canyon.
MONKMAN PARK
Virtually undiscovered, this park is 32,000
hectares of wilderness containing abundant
wildlife, wildflower meadows, mountain glaciers
and lakes, as well as the 60 metre high Kinuseo
Falls, just 63 kilometres south of Tumbler Ridge.
