    Route Description for Cottonwood Island Loop Trail

    Immerse in nature and get moving without too much physical effort on the Cottonwood Island Loop Trail in Prince George. If you need a body break, head here for a relaxing walk alongside the river. Look out for carvings on the trees! This is also a family- and dog-friendly adventure.

    After stepping out of your vehicle at the parking lot, it will be easy to spot the trail. Our route heads clockwise around Cottonwood Island Park. Walk straight until you see a path right towards the river. Follow this path as it curves to unveil scenic riverside views. Continue to make your way around the loop, passing another parking lot on the way. The trail then bends upwards, passing the Railway & Forestry Museum, where lovely views of the railroad tracks await. Shortly after, you’ll reach your car!

    Bear scat often litters the trail, so bring bear spray as a precautionary measure!
