Nature and Culture
- History: Mount Terry Fox is dedicated to the memory of Terry Fox of Port Coquitlam, B.C. Terry Fox lost a leg to bone cancer, but undertook to run across Canada to raise funds for cancer research. He completed 5,375 km before illness forced him to end his run. His valiant effort against incredible odds touched the hearts of all Canadians and people around the world. Terry died on June 28, 1981. The mountain that bears his name will serve forever as an enduring and fitting memorial to a young Canadian’s determination, selflessness, and courage.
The park was officially dedicated September 22, 1981 by the family of Terry Fox and the people of British Columbia.

Activities Available at this Park
There is a trail that will take you to Mount Terry Fox. It is rough and steep in sections. Take the first left heading south from the Terry Fox viewpoint on Highway 5. Cross C.N. tracks and bear left. Proceed past the gravel pit and water spout. Take the second right to a gravel pit. A sign marks the trail head. 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.
Pets on Leash

You are responsible for their behaviour and must dispose of their excrement.Backcountry areas are not suitable for dogs or other pets due to wildlife issues and the potential for problems with bears.
Facilities Available at this Park
While campfires are allowed and campfire rings are provided at each campsite, we encourage visitors to conserve wood and protect the environment by minimizing the use of fire and using campstoves instead. Firewood can be purchased in the park or you may bring your own wood.Fees for firewood are set locally and may vary from park to park. Limited burning hours or campfire bans may be implemented. To preserve vegetation and ground cover, please don’t gather firewood from the area around your campsite or elsewhere in the park (this is a ticketable offence under the Park Act). Dead wood is an important habitat element for many plants and animals and it adds organic matter to the soil.
This park has a day-use/picnic area.
Pit or Flush Toilets
Flush toilets are available at the roadside pull-out (Highway 16 viewpoint).
