Compared to the easily accessible Mount Revelstoke and Glacier National Parks, Monashee Provincial Park takes a bit more effort to get to. Mount Revelstoke is known for its paved access road that takes tourists to alpine with no physical effort. Glacier National Park is known for its ruggedness and shear splendour. It is hard to beat Glacier for the quality of alpine climbing but it lacks something… Other than the Copperstain and Bald Hills (a daunting trip in itself due to the massive valley bottom approach), Glacier lacks rolling alpine meadow hiking. Most trails within the park start at valley bottom and take considerable effort to reach alpine. This is where Monahsee Provincial shines. Once into the park, endless alpine meadow rambling awaits. There are many possibilities for reaching the park. Some follow established hiking trails and some follow easy to very difficult bushwhacks. Little and Big Peter Lakes, Margie Lake and Fawn Lake are beautiful. There are also some scrambling objectives such as Mount Fosthall, Slate and Cariboo Mountains. Probably the most enjoyable multi-day traverse I have ever done started at the southern end of the park and traversed northward to the north boundary along the height of land. Be sure to check out this traverse in the Monashee Park Alpine Traverse section.
