Kinuseo Falls

Kinuseo Falls is a majestic waterfall located 65 km from Tumbler Ridge in Monkman Provincial Park. If you’re interested in history, geology, or taking in the view there is something for everyone. The S-Shaped folds in the rock wall beside the waterfall amaze visitors. There are interpretive signs and endless picture taking opportunities, whether you choose the shortest hike from your vehicle to the upper viewpoint or venture further on the moderate difficulty trails that lead to the riverside.  We really recommend the trail along the top of the ridge which gives an even better view! Walking distances range from 0.5 km to 4 km return. An interpretive brochure is available where you’ll learn interesting facts (like how much higher this fall is than Niagara Falls).

Tyrannosaur Trackway

Visit the Dinosaur Discovery Gallery (DDG) located in Tumbler Ridge at 255 Murray Drive to see replicas and interpretation of the only known Tyrannosaur trackways in the world. There are three trackways located in the Tumbler Ridge UNESCO Global Geopark (TRUGG). Of the 15 Tyrannosaur tracks found in the entire world, 10 of those are right here in the TRUGG! The DDG also has exhibits of a 100 million year old dinosaur environment, Triassic fossil fish and numerous dinosaur tracks. The gallery displays the many hours of dinosaur excavation work by palaeontologists Dr. Rich McCrea and Dr. Lisa Buckley. If you’re looking for something for the kids, call 250-242-3466 and ask for information about daily and weekly summer dinosaur camps.

While the 4.5 km return hike takes 2-3 hours and is rated moderate in difficulty, you’ll want to give yourself some extra time to explore. Remember to take a flashlight along to explore the caves!
