This trip is woven into the history of the Fraser and Cariboo gold rushes and a link with British Columbia’s colourful past. In 1848 A.C. Anderson of the Hudson’s Bay Company set out to establish a fur-trading route to the north and east overland from Yale. Therefore this walk is a must; not only is it attractive scenically, it also allows the hiker to retrace one of the earliest pioneer routes to the Interior. The trail begins by a small stream and, joined very soon by the original route from the lodge, climbs in a series of zigzags in open timber, heading east.
