Description From Owner:
  • Gwillim River - After John Cole Gwillim (1868-1920), Professor of Mining at Queen's University, who made surveys in the area in 1919.
  • Hell's Half Acre - A slide area of immense boulders, some as big as a house, thrown helter-skelter, with many dangerous crevices. Named by men seeking a route for the Monkman Pass Highway.
  • Kinuseo Falls - Kinuseo is the Cree Indian word for 'fish,' the pools both above and below these falls being full of trout. The falls themselves are 180 feet or fifty-five metres high, not counting the cascades above.
  • Monkman Pass - This pass, providing access between central British Columbia and the Peace River country, is 162 feet lower than the Yellowhead Pass.
  • Alexander Monkman, a Peace River trader and trapper, discovered it by chance during a 1922 hunting trip.
  • Tumbler Ridge - The origin of this name is rather obscure but it may be derived from unstable strata on a nearby mountain.
