Opening Spring 2021

Huble Homestead Historic Site is now closed for the 2020 season. We are so grateful to the visitors we had visit the homestead this year, and look forward to opening our doors to visitors again in 2021. Please note that Huble Homestead will not be open on the Thanksgiving Monday, but visitors are still able to visit the park if they so choose.

 

If choosing to visit the park we ask that visitors please stay home if they are feeling ill and that they maintain a distance of at least two metres between themselves and any other visitors they may encounter. Visitors looking to explore their local area are invited to try their luck at our geocaches

Hiking the Giscome Portage (as of June 2, 2020)

Amazing volunteers from the Caledonia Ramblers have cleared blowdown on the Giscome Portage trail from Mitchell Road to North Fraser Road, and from the North Fraser Road to Tay Creek. Despite the planks laid down by the Ramblers, it is still rather wet. Be warned that the mosquitoes are quite fierce. Please note that there is no bridge over Tay Creek, which means if you are starting from Mitchell Road that you will not be able to hike the north end of the portage.

 

If you're looking for more information about the trail, please visit the BC Parks website. Historical information about the trail can be found here.
