Book Description

May 1 2002

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.

About the Author

Garry Edwards has wanted to do a book about hiking since his first alpine hike 30 years ago. He has volunteered with environmental organizations in Quesnel for a number of years and regards this guide as a contribution to the cause of environmentalism in the North Cariboo.

Dorothea Funk is a former CBC Radio reporter and announcer (La Ronge, Saskatoon, Inuvik and Prince George) who moved to Wells in 1993. She is the Director of Administration and Programming at Island Mountain Arts, a non-profit society which runs an annual school of the arts. She is also the Wells Community Librarian. In her spare time she enjoys hiking the trails featured in this guide, as well as attempting to garden at 4000 feet.

Ken Stoker is a computer nerd originally from Cape Breton Island. In the Cariboo he has found a passion for mountain biking and a talent for map presentation technology.
