Must Visit Places: Toad River Valley, British Columbia, Canada

March 21, 2012 by

Toad River Valley, a part of┬áThe Muskwa-Kechika Management Area, located in north-eastern BC where the boreal plains and muskeg regions of the east meet the rugged Northern Rocky Mountains and Cascades of the west, is described as Canada’s ‘Serengeti of the North.’ The M-KMA is located in the Cordilleran Region along the Omineca and Foreland Belts, within the Northern and Central Plateaus and Mountains physiographic region.

The rugged terrain of the M-KMA is emphasized by prominent mountains and valleys, with features such as waterfalls, hoodoos, glaciers, and hot springs. A classic example is the Rocky Mountain Trench, a wide valley through which the Kechika River flows, and which divides the Northern Rocky Mountains.
