While Glacier National Park and Mount Revelstoke Park nearby may hold the jewels of the area, there are also a number of other fantastic area hikes that should not be overlooked. In other words, the Revelstoke area is a mecca for hiking, and you may want to make this a base-camp for your explorations in the B.C. Monashee and Selkirk Mountains.

You also have Rogers Pass not far away and my all-time favourite, the Berg Lake Trail (under Mt. Robson) which is on Trailpeak.

You may also note that we have captured some trails within Glacier National Park itself (use our search engine with "Revelstoke" as nearest city), however, this is a general overview of hikes in the immediate vicinity of Revelstoke.

By trailpeakPosted By: trailpeak  - Thu Jun 13 18:40:24 EDT 2002 Not Rated Comment Apparently there is a Revelstoke festival, featuring folk music, outdoor events, etc. This was taken from an online posting:

Description: A musical buffet nestled in a mountainous amphitheatre on the Columbia River. Ring in your sunny, Summer Solstice with the right vibes in a rural way. Featuring a diversity of music, from blues to funk, art vendors, a kids tent (with child care), a climbing wall and a micro-brew beer garden.
Location: Centennial Park, a 5-minute walk from downtown Revelstoke
