Attention Outdoorsmen. This is the ultimate hunting/recreational retreat in the heart of British Columbia’s Northern Rockies. This 305-acre property is a wildlife mecca. Cypress Creek dissects the parcel, and the Halfway River adjoins the property at its eastern boundary. The confluence of these two rivers provides excellent hunting and fishing opportunities. Moose, deer, elk and bears are all found in abundance along with rainbow and bull trout.
The property has a large hay field (approx 100 acres), which attracts elk herds throughout the year. The land is largely flat with pockets of timber providing shelter for wildlife throughout the property.
The property has a rustic 1,600 sqft cabin with wood stove and basic amenities. The cabin was built in 1981 & serves as an excellent hunting base. There is a 30′ x 40′ detached shop perfect for storing equipment and more. The property provides immediate access to thousands of acres of Crown Land. Simply pick a direction and start your exploration. Since the property sits at the end of the Cypress Creek Road, you will seldomly see any other hunters exploring the surrounding Crown Land.
Rarely do properties of this magnitude and remoteness come on the market in this region. Hence, they are highly sought after. The property has great access despite its remote nature allowing you to enjoy the property all through the year. Do not miss this opportunity to create memories with your family in the great outdoors.

The Pink Mountain area abounds with wildlife. Along with the wolf, black bear, grizzly bear, deer, elk, moose and bison—which travel through the main yard on a regular basis—there have even been stone sheep rams sighted in the past year on the mountains to the west. The area is also internationally recognized for its arctic butterflies, lynx, fisher, and wolverine. The Halfway River is a short distance from the property and is teeming with huge bull trout, rainbow trout and grayling.
The property is a naturalist and wildlife enthusiast’s dream come true with never ending trails and waterways to explore, walking, canoeing, kayaking and quadding. For the hunting enthusiast it doesn’t get any better than this with your own property serving as a hub for wildlife. Sitting at the foot of the Northern Rockies this property is a doorway to the endless wild country.

Pink Mountain Provincial Park
The park was traditionally used by the Sekani and Dunneza (Beaver) first nations. During the late 18th century European fur trappers, traders, and explorers moved into and through the area. Fur trading posts were established in the surrounding area at Fort St. John, Hudson’s Hope and Fort Nelson. With the development of the Alaska Highway in 1943, improved access encouraged the development of forestry and gas exploration. Road development further facilitated use by the public who sought out the unique opportunity to view the diverse wildlife species found in the area. In 1997 the Fort St. John Land and Resource Management Plan recommended the area for protection. It was subsequently designated as a provincial park in 1999. The primary role of Pink Mountain Provincial Park is to protect a significant palaeontological site containing examples of large fauna from the Mesozoic Era.
Pink Mountain is also the only place in the province where wild plains bison roam. The 1,000 plus bison found roaming the area are not naturally occurring, but rather descendants of an escaped herd of 50 from those imported by local guide and outfitter R. Lynn Ross in 1968.
