HISTORY OF MONKMAN PROVINCIAL PARK, BC

Monkman Provincial Park was named after Alex Monkman, who in 1922 discovered the Monkman Pass. He first hoped a railway would be built here. The project was eventually stopped with lack of funding and the Second World War. Later a railway was built through the Pine Pass. Brooks Falls in Monkman Provincial Park was named after Carl Brooks, a volunteer who worked with Alex Monkman in building the highway.

Monkman Provincial Park was established in July of 1981 and covers and area of 32,000 hectares. An additional 30,896 hectares of protected areas was added to the southern boundary of the park in 1999.

There are many rapids, waterfalls, streams and lakes that make it an adventure to remember. There are also small caves with stalactites, moonsmilk and other formations that are within hiking distance.

Getting to Monkman Provincial Park: First take Highway 52 south of Tumbler Ridge to the Quintette Mine Site. From Highway 52 it is 51km to Kinuseo Falls. The road is paved to the mine but from then on the road is gravel and takes on 3 different stages. The first few kilometres is a fine crushed rock and the travel is good and interesting as the road goes under tunnels as it winds around the mine. The next part of the road, has very loose gravel and one can expect to travel between 50-55km an hour. (slower if pulling an RV) About half ways the loose gravel road becomes more challenging with many potholes, ruts,and a number of one way bridges.

Located in Monkman Provincial Park is also a series of ten waterfalls known as the Cascades. Three of the falls are named Moore, Monkman and Brooks Falls located along 3 km of Monkman Creek. There are 3 backcountry camping spots. One is at the Murray Crossing, at Kilometre 13 of the Monkman Trail and at Monkman Lake. Each campsite is equipped with a bear cache to store food and gear, a fire pit and pit toilet. The Monkman Lake Trail is a 7km hike that takes you to the Murray River Crossing where a suspension bridge is located. In the southeast section of the Park there are several aquamarine lakes.

Information on how to get to the many falls and lakes can be found at the Tourist Booth in Tumbler Ridge, BC.
