Description / Notes
BC Parks and the City of Quesnel are conducting fuel management treatments at Pinnacles Provincial Park from December 14, 2021, to March 30, 2022. Crews will be working onsite to reduce crown and ground fuels with the aim of slowing down wildfire behavior and improving firefighting opportunities. The public will see controlled burning of small hand piles in the park for the duration of the fuel management operations. Controlled burning generates less smoke than out-of-control wildfires and helps us proactively take measures to prevent disasters. Trails will remain open, however, trail use will be interrupted in various locations. Please obey all signs.
Located just 7 km west of Quesnel, Pinnacles Provincial Park is open year-round and provides one of the best views of Quesnel, in addition to vistas high above Baker Creek and the park's famous "hoodoo" rock formations. A short, well-maintained 1 km hike will take you to the viewpoints. Please be safe and stay on the trail and be aware there is a steep drop-off behind a fence. Outhouse facilities are provided in this park, and pets are permitted on a leash.
