Welcome to our Geopark

Explore, Discover, and Learn in Beautiful British Columbia.

There's more to a Geopark than meets the eye!


Within a relatively small area, the hills, mountains and valleys around the town contain a remarkable variety of geological features.


World Class trackways and fossils have led to BC’s only vertebrate research center being established within the TRGG.  A true cornerstone of our Geopark.

The geology in a Geopark is linked to sites with interesting archaeology, wildlife, history, folklore and culture. Tourism industry promotion in a Geopark focuses on highlighting the geographical character of a place.

Geoparks also inform about the sustainable use and need for natural resources, whether they are mined (like metallurgical coal), quarried or harnessed from the surrounding environment, while at the same time promoting respect for the environment and the integrity of the landscape.
Compared with national or provincial parks which are often “top-down”, government-initiated projects, a Geopark is typically a grassroots, community-driven initiative that depends on local passion and “sense-of-place”.

Founded in the early 80’s as a mining community Tumbler Ridge has developed into a world class destination for eco-tourism.  Featuring a full season’s worth of hiking trails and many other recreational options Tumbler Ridge offers a unique experience.

We have a magnificent diversity of outstanding and accessible mountain geology, extraordinary waterfalls, and dinosaur fossils and trackways unmatched in the known world.

For sheer joy and contentment, I know of nothing like this; a hundred miles or two from any civilization and no human being within miles… the spell of the mountains.
–John Holzworth
