Brisco is a quaint, rural area north of Radium Hot Springs. The area features unique views of the Columbia River wetlands and is the main access to the world-famous Bugaboo Mountains.
Brisco is located 27 km (17 mi) north of Radium Hot Springs and 76 km (47 mi) south of Golden on Highway 95.
Bugaboo Provincial Park is located in southeastern B.C. in the Purcell Mountains, between Golden and Radium Hot Springs, and west of Highway 95. Access to the park is about 50 km (31 mi) of gravel road from Hwy 95 at Brisco. Bugaboo Provincial Park draws climbers from around the world to its airy, glacier-sculpted granite spires. With many peaks over 3,000 metres in elevation the Bugaboo's offer awe inspiring mountain and glacier terrain. The Conrad Kain Hut is maintained by BC Parks and the Alpine Club of Canada. This base camp for climbers operates to reduce visitor impacts on the fragile timberline area below Snowpatch Spire. Road access to the park is relatively easy via logging roads but hiking trails are few. Inexperienced or ill-equipped climbers and hikers should forego a visit here in favour of less demanding areas of the province.
