Mount Robson Provincial Park
Though most hikers primarily seek pristine wilderness, grand scenery, and a tranquil atmosphere, some hikers are chiefly interested in flora and fauna. If you're a member of the flora-and-fauna camp, don't let Mount Robson Provincial Park's worldwide fame put you off.
The vast majority of hikers stride to Berg Lake, turn around and stride out, confining themselves to the main trail. Beyond, in all directions, the flora and fauna of Mount Robson Provincial Park are largely unaffected and continue flourishing.
Mount Robson Provincial Park's flora and fauna are typical of the western slope of the Rocky Mountains. During a single dayhike here, it's possible to traverse three distinct vegetation zones.
More than 182 species of birds have been documented in Mount Robson Provincial Park. All the wildlife species indigenous to the Canadian Rockies are here. In the park's lower elevations, you might see mule or whitetail deer, elk, moose, or black bear. In the park's upper elevations, you might see caribou, mountain goat, bighorn sheep, or grizzly bear.
Mount Robson Provincial Park comprises more than 217,000 hectares (536,218 acres) of wilderness, which ensures wildlife can thrive. Wildlife viewing opportunities are frequent, year round, throughout the park.
