An excellent winter facility for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing when it snows!! Tracks are regularly groomed, there is adequate parking and a nice warming hut. Sledding facilities are improving and there is also a snowmobile run. Check it out on the internet. Easily accessible from Wilson Creek (between Gibsons and Sechelt.

This is nice and not crazy busy like Hollyburn or Manning Park. You need a 4x4, but you can also get the bus up through Alpha Adventures in Wilson Creek Park Mall.

Dakota is an amazing place to visit! I would go more, if only I had 4 wheel drive on my own car! Trails are fantastic and at varied levels. kids love the toboggan hills and the nice warm up hut is fantastic. Don't consider going without the right vehicle!

We had a great day with Alpha Adventures last weekend - after a 10:30 rendezvous we were transported in a 4 X 4 van to Dakota Ridge. Couldn't believe that there was so much snow on top! Nicely groomed trails and the chance to go off the trails as well. Friendly volunteers make this 'their' ridge, and you get the... More

We travelled to Dakota with Alpha Adventures which made the trip fun and safe. As we were with young ones ages 4 and 7 we stuck to the sliding hills and the warming hut. Packed a hearty lunch and stayed warm by the fire to enjoy it. Lots of hooks to hang your things and the ones by fire helped... More

One of the many Sunshine Coast gems, Dakota Ridge is the destination of choice for cross country, back country and snow shoe enthusiasts. Easy access (4x4 recommended) miles of groomed runs, parking, warming hut and views to die for, Dakota Ridge is not to be missed.
