Prince George offers a handful of attractions, many of which take in the city’s surrounding forests. There are over 1600 lakes within a 150km radius of town, all offering beautiful settings for hiking, fishing and canoeing. A host of hiking trails exist, including an easy walk through the Ancient Forest, the world’s furthest inland rainforest, while Forests for the World offers 15km of trails and a gorgeous lakeside picnic site. Just north of downtown the Cottonwood Island Nature Park has similar trails with interpretive signs and wood spirit carvings in the trees. The city’s central Connaught Hill Park affords a 360-degree view over the city; check with the tourist office for trail details.
