Crooked River as a canoe trip starts at Summit Lake at the bridge just past the community camp site. The Crooked River runs along Hwy 97 North. The River its self is quite shallow and more or less slow moving. I have found the best time to go is in late June. There is a nice camp spot under the Dominion Lake road bridge on the left hand side (just after the first bridge). Crooked River is really fun for beginners and we usually camp our second night at Davy Lake. We canoe this in two days but it can be done in just one day if you were so inclined.

As a hike, there's not much elevation gain. Watch for Trail signs and marker when you get past Squaw Lake. Livingstone Spring is a warm water spring that keeps the river open in winter and attracts Swans to the area. There is an historic trapper's cabin to check out at the springs.

Directions:

Head North along Hwy 97 North out of Prince George to Crooked River Provincial park. It is about 50km to Summit Lake. Turn left off Hwy 97 at Tallen Road (to Tea Pot Mountain and Summit Lake Camp Site). Launch at the Bridge.
