Beautiful drive up in to Revelstoke National Park for great views of Revelstoke and surrounding area. We drove as far as the road was open (due to snow) to Monashee lookout. We took about an hour for the drive there and back, including time to admire the views. We'll worth the detour!

I have no doubt when this road is fully open the views are fantastic but unfortunately in May it is only open to about the second viewpoint(Monashee) and the view from here is nothing special as it is not very high. So my advice is if you are here to visit in late May just after the parkway opens don't... More

Have always wanted to drive to the top, but never had the time. This holiday we had the time and unfortunately the road was closed due to early snows at the halfway point. Will open again next spring sometime. Whole park closed as of today. Gorgeous views of Revelstoke and the surrounding valleys though.

Great views of the town and river, lot's of small hiking trails, there's also a small shuttle bus from the main car park to the summit, handy to get this and walk back down if you're not feeling that energetic. Trails are all signposted and cared for with interpretive signs. There is a fee to enter, however we were there... More

We visited on a lovely sunny day whilst staying in Revelstoke on our way to Vancouver. Really nice easy drive-up, was pretty busy but eventually managed to park up and walk the last part up through the meadows which were such a sight to see! Wished w'ed had the energy to do more pity that there never seems to be... More

The first shuttle bus leaves the carpark at the end of the hairpin-strewn road at 10 am. It is worth getting to the top early if you intend to do the small trails around the top of Mount Revelstoke before the crowds arrive. Give yourselves at least 45 minutes to drive up from Revelstoke

The alpine flowers were great and we enjoyed the trail showing how they were used by the first peoples. Worth walking to the top if you can manage it and doing all of the paths up at the top as it was pretty quiet when we were there, unlike some places in the Rockies where you can't move for tourists....

Only a couple of true viewing areas on the parkway - road side trees pretty much block the views. However, it's worth the drive up to the summit of Mount Revelstoke for the hiking trails and views of the Selkirk Mountains.
