When it comes right down to it, there are over 12,000 maintained parks in British Columbia. These are not take your dog on a leash walking trails through the middle of town parks. In British Columbia, it's not uncommon to share the trail with a moose, a grizzly bear, or hear a pack of wolves howling after dark while you are camping at one of the 2000 walk in locations designated as park use.

From Glacier National Park in the southeast of the province to Great Bear Rainforest on Vancouver Island; from Northern Rocky Mountains Provincial to Wrinkly Face Provincial Parks, there is not a bad choice to experience the outdoors in British Columbia.

Be prepared! The wild is awe-inspiring for a reason, and people forget to respect its power sometimes. Don't forget to let someone know where you're going before your expedition into this outstanding province. Better yet, take them with you and let someone else know where the both of you will be!
