Flocks of migrating swans and geese, and the endangered Western Spotted Toad visit the lake. Miles of wide trails for hiking and cross-country skiing provide an intimate platform to see the wonders of nature at work around you. Only 70 air miles from the southernmost tip of Alaska, an almost endless list of scenic journeys beckon, among them the iconic and beautiful drive to Prince Rupert. The skiing on Hudson Bay Mountain is one of the best kept secrets in British Columbia, as are the nearby world-class lakes and rivers.
