Backcountry enthusiasts soon can make reservations for two popular adventures in B.C. parks - the world-renowned Berg Lake Trail and Bowron Lake Canoe Circuit.

Gaining 800 metres of elevation in 23 kilometres, the Berg Lake Trail boasts some of the best scenery in the province, providing views of waterfalls, turquoise-coloured lakes and massive glaciers.

The trail is open year-round and can be reserved from June 12 to Sept. 30.

The Bowron Lake Canoe Circuit involves 116 kilometres of paddling across 10 lakes with several portages that are relatively flat. The entire trip takes six to 10 days to complete, depending on skill level. Those looking for a shorter trip can paddle the west side of the circuit, which takes two to four days to complete.

The canoe circuit can be reserved from May 15 to Sept. 23.

Reservations for long weekends fill up fast for both adventures. Visitors need to be well prepared and self-sufficient due to the limited facilities in wilderness areas.
