A short interpretive stroll through the swamplands of the Columbia Valley. If you’re driving through Mount Revelstoke National Park from April to mid-May, you must stop and explore the Skunk Cabbage Trail. At this time of year the trailside is lined by the plant’s full-blooming bright-yellow flowers. These valley-bottom wetlands along the Illecillewaet River are rich in animal and plant life; May and June are ideal for bird-watching.
