Hiking the Cariboo Goldfields is a discovery of scenic wealth for the modern hiker just as the Gold Rush trails it describes were the routes to riches long ago. Follow the 1861 Gold Rush Pack Trail in the footsteps of those determined miners who first discovered the riches of the Cariboo. Hike the Historic Goat River Trail, originally cleared in 1886 and since restored as a 91 km-long hiking trail between the upper Fraser River and Bowron Lake Provincial Park. Follow the route between Barkerville and Wells through Stout's Gulch and Lowhee Creek for a fascinating look at the impact of hydraulic mining or climb to one of the surrounding peaks for a spectacular view of goldfields country and the Cariboo Mountains to the east. This guide features easy to use trail maps made with GPS technology, accurate trail descriptions, and interesting information about the natural and historical landscape.
