Description Of This Tour

Walk the historic trails of Marron Valley with Historian Randy Manuel as he tells of the hidden canyon footpaths of First Nations youth while on their quests to reach adulthood and the route taken by early Brigaders. Walk quietly past the turtle marsh and up the early stage coach road that the early settlers of the Similkameen once trod. Walk the area locals called Starvation Jackson’s Flats and hear the story how one of Jackson’s sons became one of the richest men in British Columbia. The tour ends with a selection of cheese, meats, crackers and fruit with hot and cold beverages enjoyed on the lawn over-looking Marron Lake in the garden of Mountain Springs Nature Retreat.

Please be prepared for all sorts of weather – hot, sunny, windy, cold and rain too! Dress in layers and bring all-weather clothing, sunscreen, a sun hat, sturdy hiking footwear, a snack and at least 1 litre of water for all tours and events. For longer walks and hikes you will need at least 2 litres of water, as well as snacks and a bagged lunch (if not provided). Cameras, binoculars and plant and bird field guides are optional but add to your enjoyment. Please note any additional items to bring if applicable for your tour.
