Forests for the World
Forests for the World is a 106 hectare demonstration forest with 15 (8.5 mi.) kilometres of hiking trails located in the heart of Prince George, BC, Canada. The park, established in 1986, enables adventurers to learn about the various forest eco systems and the flora and fauna that thrive in the Fraser - Nechako Plateau region.
Over the years thousands of spruce, pine and Douglas fir trees have been planted throughout the park. Some areas have been left in their natural state for regeneration. Both methods of reforestation provide an opportunity to view the difference between a natural and a managed forest.
The extensive trail system is suitable for all ages and abilities. Some sections of the trail system are wheelchair and baby stroller friendly while other hiking trails involve some elevation gain with tree roots and boulders. The main trail to Shane Lake is suitable for all groups and abilities as it is very well maintained. At Shane Lake there are many amenities to ensure a good time. There are picnic tables, a picnic shelter, a BBQ pit, fire pits, pit toilets, a viewing platform and two fishing docks.
