Greenstone Mountain Provincial Park
Premier Listings for Greenstone Mountain Provincial Park
Greenstone Mountain Provincial Park is situated in the Thompson Valley, southwest of Kamloops. This 124-hectare park encompasses Kwilalkwila Lake and offers spectacular panoramic views of the surrounding mountains, lakes and the Thompson Valley from atop Greenstone Mountain.
Surrounding vegetation consists of high elevation grasslands, bluebunch wheatgrass, forb and sagebrush. Greenstone Mountain (1,793 metres) is one of the highest elevations at which big sagebrush grows. The forests are a mix of lodgepole pine, Douglas-fir, aspen and spruce. Nearby talus and cliff faces contrast with the rest of the park and provide habitat for a variety of bird species.
There are no camping or day-use facilities provided at this park. The Greenstone Mountain Trails provide many trails on the mountain and throughout the park suitable for hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding. Depending on snow levels and vehicle access, you can snowshoe and snowmobiling is permitted. A forest service look-out at the top of the mountain has been refurbished and is maintained by local snowmobile and ATV groups for the use of the public as an emergency shelter and viewing destination. This lookout is not on park land.
Greenstone Mountain Provincial Park is located 12.5 miles (20 km) southwest of Kamloops. Access is off the Trans-Canada Highway 1 west of Kamloops, by Greenstone Road, the Dominic Lake forestry road and a service road for communications facilities.
