Forests for the World


Forests for the World is a 106-hectare demonstration forest and popular nature park located on Cranbrook Hill. It was established in 1986 to commemorate the 70th anniversary of Prince George, and to celebrate the City’s participation in Expo 86. 

Forests for the World’s undulating topography and high point of land (880 metres) offer scenic views of the Prince George region. Some areas of the forest have been replanted with spruce, pine and Douglas fir trees, while other areas have been left in a natural state, allowing visitors to experience the various ecosystems, flora and fauna that thrive on the Fraser-Nechako Plateau.

Forests for the World includes 15 kilometres of hiking trails, as well as two viewing platforms, interpretive signage, and a fishing dock and picnic facilities at Shane Lake.
