Monashee Provincial Park
What a magical place!!!! A must for those looking for an amazing backcountry experience. The park is located between Vernon, BC and Arrow Lake (Nakusp, BC) and it is a place you wont forget. Old growth rainforest and big snowcapped mountains are the norm and the park provides some ample opportunites for backcountry camping/hiking, mountaineering/climbing and scrambling. Spectrum Lake is a great overnight trip, well suited for a intermediate, and Mt.Footsall is a highly recommended climb/scramble. Even the drive into this place is a beautiful adventure, passing the upper Shuswap River and Sugar Lake, be sure to check out Rainbow Falls along the way, it's worth the small detour! Included here is a link to the Park Site for the Monashees, go and find out for yourself and watch for bears hahaaha!
