We visited mid October so as everybody says the cabbage is pretty much done. The stroll was peaceful and beautiful even so. We will probably visit again next June to see it in full bloom. Although the parking lot is easy to access I would...More

Not the most compelling name, but was a lovely, quiet stroll in early autumn along the boardwalk searching for birds and toads. Good opportunity to stretch your legs.

The skunk cabbage and other vegetation is over the hill by late September. At 10 in the morning the boardwalk was still icy and slippery. We decided after a short distance to not continue with the walk. It wasn't worth the risk of falling.

It is an easy place to find with parking. There is a short trail that takes you into where the skunk cabbages are located. But, they are best seen in early summer. By late summer, they have lost their pods and are falling down. Before...More

This walk goes through wetlands and not forest so if you are looking for the "Typical Canadian Rockies" walk with tall trees and cascading water this one is not for you. We were there on a warm day and much of the walk is in...More

It's cool because I never thought there would be that type of ecological system in the mountains. Great educational plaques. Beautiful parking/staging area. The walk is brief, although maintenance/construction prevented it from being a full loop

A trail from the parking area leads to a circular boardwalk where a section is closed for repair and growth either side has been cut back. We missed any signs which might have warned us about this so were disappointed. Keep going along the highway...More

Hi, it's me again. I just checked the Parks Canada page and Skunk Cabbage Trail is closed for the winter.

We are planning to drive from Calgary to Revelstoke and stay there for two nights in late August, then head to Vancouver the next morning. Below is my plan, does it look reasonable? Any other suggestions?

Would you be staying in Revelstoke the night before Day 1 or the night after Day 2? If Day 1 includes the drive from Calgary, I suspect you'll run out of time and/or energy before doing all the trail/boardwalks. Without any stops, it's about 4.5 hrs from Calgary to Revelstoke, and I'd probably allow at least an hour longer because of multiple places where there's construction along the TCH. I'd play it by ear - see what time you get to Roger's Pass, and also what the weather is doing....More

My girls (age 10 & 9) and I spent 3 days in Revelstoke and area last week. We had a fantastic time. We stayed at the Smoky Bear Campground. They have a cabin (soon to get 4 more) you can rent for a very decent price. It has 2 double beds, a futon and a set of bunkbeds. There's a fridge, microwave, TV, wood-burning stove, bath. Very cozy and nice. There is an outdoor pool that is heated with a wood-stove. It's about 80 degrees so even though we were there mid-June we were able to go...More

Glad to hear you had a great time! Sounds like you were very busy. Just to let you know, I believe the restaurant you are talking about is "Emo's" - I agree the food is excellent!
