Welcome to our Geopark

Explore, Discover, and Learn in Beautiful British Columbia.

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

Geology

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

Palaeontology

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.

Human History

Prehistoric to the modern we celebrate our diversity and honour our heroes.

Happy #ThrowbackThursday! We found this cool article in the Tumbler Ridge Archives from the opening of the Flatbed Pools and Tepee Falls hiking trails on August 31, 2001. I wonder how many people have hiked these trails in the last 15 years? #TBT

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.
