The Vineyards


Located about 18 kms east-southeast of Tumuch Lake and about 115 kms southeast of Prince George.

The trail initially follows a old logging road for 3.3 km, then crosses an old clearcut (.6 km) before ascending through subalpine forest (1 km) to beautiful meadows at 1800 m.

A short walk across the meadows give access to a ridge with many peaks that are visible from Highway 16 in the Dome Creek area.  Good views of Mt. Sir Alexander and the rest of the north Rockies may be had.  It is a good area to see wildlife especially caribou and grizzly bears.

NOTE September 2021: Park about 600m up the spur road that was active in 2020 but have since not been used.  Most car's can make it to this point with some careful/slow driving, beyond that the old road has deep cross ditches above the logging but is passable to the trailhead with a truck with high clearance. Use caution and good judgement when deciding how far you are able to drive towards the trailhead, the extra hike up the road offers some views towards Caledonia Mt. and such.

NOTE Winter 2021/2022:  The Tumuch FSR in NOT being actively plowed.
