near Sun Valley, British Columbia (Canada)

A hilly walk as a result of granitic intrusive rocks resistant to erosion. The climbs to the Low Knoll, the Addington Lookput, and the High Knoll are somtimes rocky. All threee loactions have great views to the SW, S, and W over the Pitt-Addington Marsh lands and the Fraser River Valley.

Signs advise that black bears are sometimes very active in the park. Cougars are also present. Two large marsh ponds host abundant and varies waterfowl. The ponds have several beaver lodges.

Minnekhada Lodge (1930's Country Estate House) is accessible from the south end of Lower Marsh. The interior is open to public on Sunday afternoons (check times in advance).
