The Skagit Valley, located deep in a gap between the main ranges of the Coast Mountains, is a unique area only 150km east of Vancouver. Its extraordinary flatness, rolling hills and low elevation created by heavy glaciation make the Skagit Valley a geographical rarity in the Lower Mainland. Because the Skagit Valley lies in a transition zone between the wetter Western Hemlock and the drier Interior Douglas-Fir zone, it supports wildlife of both coastal and interior habitat. This guide invites you to roam the river bottom, hills and meadows of the Skagit Valley. Come listen to the frogs sing or glimpse the secretive bobcat, the night prowling Northern flying squirrel or the beaver dams. Enjoy the park and the spectacular scenery is provides.
