A walk around Ferry Island, Terrace BC

Hi all! For myself, the perfect day always encorporates a connection with mother nature. In Terrace BC, this is easily accomplished with the numorous forests trails, river banks, and wildlife surrounding the entire town.

One of my personal favorite "green" escapes is the Ferry Island campsite and walking trail. Located only a five minute drive from the city centre off of Hwy 16, Ferry Island allows an escape from a busy day at the office. Come and enjoy thirty minutes of fresh air and bird calling while stretching your legs walking around the trail.

Equipped for overnight camping, washroom facilities, "off the leash" dog walking section and beautiful picnic spots overlooking the Skeena River, the Ferry Island trail is an appreciated local gem. I have walked the loop since I was young and still find enjoyment searching out the carved faces in the trees and identifying bird species in the canopy. Last summer I was lucky enough to spot a beaver swimming down the Skeena river next to the trail!

 

I always feel refreshed and awakened after enjoying time at Ferry Island and therefore I challenge all Terrace locals and visitors passing through to walk the loop this summer!
