Teapot Mountain, Prince George, British Columbia, Canada
Today’s Backyard Travel features a recent adventure I had, hiking up Teapot Mountain in Prince George, BC. Teapot Mountain hike is only 1.4km and only takes around a half hour to hike up yet it’s a challenging hike that certainly gets your blood pumping. Majority of the hike is spent climbing up steep inclines and around large basalt boulders… My photos are deceiving in how it looks like a slight incline.. I can assure you it’s not slight. ;)
The large boulders along the trail weren’t placed there to make the hike that much harder; these boulders date back to times before the last ice age. Teapot Mountain is a volcanic plug that formed before the ice age; meaning, it’s really ancient!
Teapot Mountain is an amazing and rewarding hike that can be done quickly in the afternoon; also, with little planning if you’re in Prince George. Once you reach the summit you get the option of going left or right around the loops that offers a 360 view of the surrounding areas.
Directions to trailhead:
Teapot Mountain’s trailhead is located approximately 45 minutes North of Prince George. Following the John Hart Highway (Hwy 97) drive roughly 50kms until you reach Talus Road, turn left onto Talus Road. Follow Talus road for 1km until you reach Caine Creek Forestry Road, turn right onto Caine Creek and drive 3.3km until you reach the trailhead which is well marked and offers parking.
