      Cautionary Advice: Trails may be partially closed due to heavy mining activity or minimum maintenance. Wells and Area trails are remote, wilderness trails and require adequate planning and gear.

      The area has one of the most incredible trail networks in the province of British Columbia. We have hundreds of kilometers of trails, through a variety of diverse ecosystems. From gentle boardwalk trails through quiet wetlands to several-day-long epic mountain expeditions through wild, rugged terrain, the Wells Barkerville Trails network offers access to some of the most beautiful country you will find anywhere.

      Some of these trails were constructed before British Columbia was a province – history is infused in our trails. You can find evidence of the great Cariboo Gold Rush throughout the area, yet because of the lack of development, you’re still able to experience much of the landscape in the same condition it was in when the first prospectors came.

      The trails experiences are limitless, but don’t forget to leave some time to experience the colourful arts community of Wells or the amazing 1860's Gold Town of Barkerville Historic Town. Also nearby is Bowron Lake Provincial Park, one of the top canoeing circuits on the planet. Whatever your schedule, you're sure to have a unique and thoroughly memorable experience.
