See Kimberley’s fall colours

Join the Nature Park Society for the annual larch hike

Two groups of hikers meet-up at Dipper Lake on a previous Golden Larch Hike presented by Kimberley Nature Park Society.

Kimberley Nature Park Society offers you a chance to get out on the trails to enjoy the western larch trees before they shed their needles. The annual Larch Hike will take place on Sunday, October 21 and is suitable for all walkers. We expect the larch to be at their brilliant, golden best and interspersed with the green shades of the pines and firs. The various willows and shrubs add to the colour mix with their yellow and red fall hues.

Join us for this hike to Dipper Lake before the wind strips the needles and leaves for another year. There are two starting points. You chose which to take. 9 am meet at the Nordic Centre for a mainly flat 4 km hike for 4 hrs. Or you can meet at the junction of St. Mary Road and Mathew Creek Road for a short car pool then a moderate 2 km hike for approximately 3 hrs. Both parties will meet at Dipper Lake where you have the option of exchanging car keys  with a friend and hiking out the other route.  Always a popular end of season outing, the Larch Hike offers outdoor exercise with friends before the cooler weather sets in.
