  • We stopped at the site of a huge natural disaster, which happened in the 1960s. It’s just off the main route, with information board. Worth a stop  more »
  • Viewpoint is well signed and easy to access. Scary to imagine what it would have been like to witness happening. To my surprise, there is an electric vehicle charging station there at the viewpoint.  more »
  • Impressive to see this landslide. If you take a short walk over the rocks you have a good chance to see some marmots.

  • This is a beautiful location to stop and have a rest. Along Crowsnet Hwy #3 just outside of Hope, B.C. A scenic drive and reat area. Try to visit if given the opportunity.
  • Very spectacular and interesting site. Impressive piece of history! And you can charge your electric vehicle here too!
  • Good spot to stretch your legs and charge your car on your long road trip
  • In the morning hours of January 9, 1965 in the Cascade Mountains about 10 miles SW of Hope AB, occurred Canada's second largest ever, landslide. The volume of rock involved in the landslide has been estimated at 16.5 million tons. Prior to the landslide, a small avalanche had forced five people to stop a few miles southeast of Hope, on a stretch of the Hope-Princeton Highway, also known as Alberta Hwy. 3. They were directly under the path of the slide. Two earthquakes were said to have been recorded in the general area of the slide. One quake occurred at 3:56 am and the second at 6:58 am. These have been shown to be too small to have caused the enormous landslide.The slide completely displaced the water and mud in what was Outram Lake, with incredible force, throwing it against the opposite side of the valley, wiping out all vegetation and trees down to the bare rock, then splashed back up the original, and now bare, slope before settling. The valley is forever changed and two bodies remain entombed in the rock. I've retold the story here, so that visitors will know when they get there that this is a burial site and treat it with the respect it deserves. A view point on Highway 3 allows tourists to view the scar. We found it a very solemn and almost revered place. It is easily found along Highway 3, even without directions, as the scar is enormous and the rock is completely bare, even yet.
  • Very nice place to picnic
