About This Park

Bobtail Mountain Provincial Park

Designated in June 2000, this 1,360 hectare park features an unusual outcropping of serpentine rock.

The Bobtail Mountain trailhead is southeast of the park. This forest service trail is about 5 km in length with a change in elevation of 470 metres. It meanders up along the southern park boundary to a south facing viewpoint at the summit of Bobtail Mountain, ending at a north facing viewpoint where a small hut has been built to provide shelter. There are no other facilities provided.

Park Size: 1360 hectare

Anyone fishing or angling in British Columbia must have an appropriate licence.
Hiking

Hiking

This 5 km trail (one-way) is marked by red paint and flagging. The trail starts with a short climb, thereafter continuing with gentle ups and downs. Along the way there are two short side trails leading to south-aspect viewpoints. The first is the actual summit of Bobtail Mountain. The trail ends at a view point where there is a cabin suitable for day-use. There is no water or stove; therefore the cabin is unsuitable for overnight use. The view point provides good views NW towards Norman Lake. For your own safety and the preservation of the park, obey posted signs and keep to designated trails. Shortcutting trails destroys plant life and soil structure.
