Day hikers will need pass for Berg Lake trail

Step taken to prevent overuse, province says

You'll need to book ahead if you want to spend a day walking the Berg Lake trail in Mount Robson Provincial Park.

Starting Wed., June 23 and lasting for the summer, a day-use pass will be mandatory for the trail, the provincial government confirmed. A similar system was in place for the peak season at the park last year.

It means you'll have to go to ahead of your visit to secure a pass.

A similar system was in place for the peak season last year and is being taken to prevent overuse, the provincial government said. 

They will be available on a per-vehicle basis with a maximum of eight people per vehicle. And there will be AM passes, for those who arrive before 1 p.m. and PM passes for those who arrive after that time with 35 passes available for each period, up from 25 last year.

Those with a campground reservation, including those with one for a frontcountry pad, won't need a pass but they will have to carry proof of their reservation at all times.

The passes will also be in place for trails and features in Garibaldi, Golden Ears, Joffre Lakes and Stawamus Chief provincial parks.
