We arrived rather late at Revelstoke (around 3pm) but we decided to drive up to the summit. It’s a beautiful route which takes you past several nice viewpoints. On top of the mountain there’s a car parking after which you can continue on foot or...More

We went up Revelstoke on the Meadows in the Sky Parkway. Unfortunately, the weather and fog made visibility practically non-existent. We took the bus to the top and walked around to see the Fire Tower. Most of the wildflowers had already peaked. Definitely stop when...More

A long drive up with opportunities to stop at viewing areas. We all enjoyed the small hikes (not strenuous) and took in the beautiful views. Great information dotted around each of the trails. And a free shuttle to take you from the parking areas up...More

Stunning views of the mountains all around. Wonderful walks through the wild flowers. Easy access on paved road. $16 day entry fee to the park.

Took our time to climb the parkway road in our car which can take about 30 mins to reach the top. Stopped a few times at various viewpoints to look out down below and see the views of the mountain, forest and surroundings. Really beautiful...More

Went here although we knew the sights maybe limited due to the bush fires, and our precautions where right. Views almost none, flies and mosquitoes a lot. Although we had prepared ourselves with repellent doesn’t seem to bother them. Made some small walks and quickly...More

Sorry I dont know since I was there in August. There is a great Tourist Information office in the nearby town of Revelstoke. Maybe they can answer your question.
