Hike the Ridgeview Lake Loop
Canada › Eskers Provincial Park Parking
Added by Kaila Walton
This great beginner hiking trail allows you to enjoy beautiful views of Ridgeview Lake
Starting at the Eskers Provinicial Park parking area, walk along the trail past the marsh view point and continue on until you cross a small bridge and see a Park Map. Turn left walking along Ridgeview Lake. There are interpretive signs on the trail explaining the types of plants and trees in the park. The trail continues further on gradual ups and downs walking through open areas and through beautifully forested areas. Some of the trees you will see in the park are Black Pine, Birch, Lodgepole Pine, and many more. Each time you get to a fork in the road there is a park map telling you where you are currently that way you don't have to worry about getting lost. Once you make it up Ridgeview Lakes ridge you get a beautiful view of the lake and there are two benches to relax in and soak up the sunshine and view. The only sounds you hear are the birds chirping and the wind softly blowing by. It is such a lovely and peaceful hike for any level of hiker.
Fires aren't permitted in the park and if you bring your dog they are supposed to be leashed the whole time. Keep on the trails as well. There is no need to veer off them. Fishing is allowed at the lakes farther into the park, but make sure you have a proper fishing license before heading out there.
Eskers Provincial Park is located 40 km northwest of Prince George. Turn west off highway 97 north onto Chief Lake Road. Continue west for 27 km . At the west end of Ness Lake turn right onto Ness Lake Road North. Follow this road for 1 km to the Eskers Provincial Park entrance. You will see a big wood sign with the parks name on it.
