Bear Lake, British Columbia

Snowshoe Livingstone Springs

5.1 Miles Total - 111.5 ft gain - Out-and-Back Trail

Originally added by Jordon Conway

​Located within Crooked River Provincial Park, Livingstone Springs are an excellent place to snowshoe during the winter months. The trail is relatively flat and the springs, which flourish with aquatic life year round, are a rewarding finishing point.

The park can be reached by traveling North from Prince George 70km or South from Mackenzie 110km on Highway 97 North. Once in Crooked River Provincial Park there is a turnoff on the West side of the highway with a yellow gate which is closed throughout winter. Vehicles can be parked in front of the gate and from here one can gear up and begin the trek.

The route starts out by keeping right on the road leading into the park, this road passes Square Lake where a directional sign can be found which shows the path to the springs. Keeping right after Square Lake the trail continues to follow the road another 1.5km where a sign indicating Livingstone Springs is reached and points right into a forest of scattered pines.

The path leads through the loose pines where glimpses of Teapot Mountain can be caught to the West. Eventually the trail descends down a bank to Livingstone Springs and Crooked River. There is an old run-down trappers cabin also at the springs. With the surrounding shoreline covered in snow while a vibrant freshwater ecosystem thrives below the unfrozen surface Livingstone Springs is well worth the trek.
