Mount Robson Park
At hikingcamping.com, we often receive letters from people after they've hiked in Mount Robson Park. For example.
"I've backpacked some of western Canada's major trails, including the West Coast Trail (which, by the way, was a huge disappointment). I've also backpacked in the Appalachians (also disappointing), the Colorado Rockies, and the Sierra Nevada. In my opinion, the scenery in Mount Robson Park was the most impressive. The Sierra was beautiful, too, but much more stark. I preferred Robson, because it was greener, had more rushing water, huge glaciers (which the Sierra lacks), and seemed way, way more vertical. Everywhere I looked, I was constantly tilting my head back and gazing upward, usually in total amazement of what I was witnessing. The scenery in Mount Robson Park is beyond awesome. I'm going back for sure." -- Grant Saylor, Kansas City, Missouri
"Mount Robson Park is a wonderful place for a beginning backpacker or an experienced backpacker. The sheer cliffs covered with thick glaciers are like a dream or a fantastic painting. Don't miss this one. Even if you heard it's very crowded like Europe, it's worth sharing with others. And on the hike to Berg Lake, you pass stunning scenery like Emperor Falls. Berg Lake is the best place to make a basecamp, then hike one day to Snowbird Pass and Coleman Icefield, and hike another day to Hargreaves Glacier." -- Simone Beeckman, Maastricht, Holland
All these letters share a common message: If you're a backpacker, and you've yet to visit Mount Robson Park, go!
