Cache Creek to 100 Mile House

A Family Bonfire

Cache Creek:
Located in the province's 'cattle country' at the Junction of Hwy 97 North to the Cariboo and the Trans Canada Hwy 1 East to Kamloops and beyond, Cache Creek is the halfway point for people traveling north from Hope to the Cariboo. This stunning area provides visitors with opportunities for rock hounding in the iron red canyons surrounding.

Hat Creek Ranch:
Located at the Junction of Hwy. 97(Cariboo Hwy.) & 99 (Lillooet Hwy), this restored historic site from the 1860's offers the visitor guided tours at what was once an important stop on the Cariboo Wagon Road.

Continue north on Highway 97 to Clinton.

Clinton:
Marking the boundaries of the Cariboo, Clinton was another important stop over point during the 1860's Gold Rush Days for miners and ranchers traveling to and from the goldfields. Interesting historic visits include the Robertson House, Government Stables and the historical United Church.

South Cariboo Historical Museum:
Constructed in 1892 with hand-made bricks, this building once served as the community's school and courthouse. In the mid-1950's the Museum Society provided displays and historic information about the areas native peoples, the Gold Rush and local industry. The Museum is located at 1419 Cariboo Hwy.

The Old Clinton Cemetery:
Located north of Clinton on Hwy. 97, visitors will find headstones dating back to the 1860's.

Chasm Provincial Park:
Millions of years ago, volcanic activity in this area created lava bedrock with stunning colors and textures. Access to the park is located 20 km (14 miles) north of Clinton, turn east at the Chasm exit and 4 km (2.5 miles) to the entrance.

70 Mile House:
Originally another of the famous roadhouses on the Cariboo Wagon Road, 70 Mile House now serves as the access to the numerous South Cariboo lakes. East are Green and Watch Lake. Just before Green Lake, the paved road forks, the left (north) leads to North Green Lake and Watch Lake while the right (east) continues to Egan Lake, Crystal Lake, Bridge Lake or Bonaparte Lake.

Highway 24:
Turn east off of Hwy. 97 at 93 Mile onto Hwy. 24. This scenic route, known as the "Fishing Highway" continues for 95 km (59 miles) passing dozens of lakes and arriving at Little Fort in the High Country of B.C.

Lone Butte:
Here in Lone Butte visitors may visit a restored B.C. Rail water tower built in the 1920's to service the steam engines of the Pacific Great Eastern Railway. Once the center for shipping cattle by rail from the many ranches in the area, Lone Butte takes it's name from the rocky butte that rises above the town.

Bridge Lake Area:
Known as 'the Interlakes' area, the aspen covered rolling hills offer visitors a spectacular display of color in the autumn. A multitude of roads lead to over 50 lakes where camping and excellent fishing may be found. Watch for the signs near the community of Bridge Lake to locate Bridge Lake Provincial Park.

Canim Falls100 Mile House:
Now serving as a starting point for many Cariboo adventures, 100 Mile House was once an overnight stop during the Gold Rush Days. The exit to Hwy 24 and the Interlakes District is located at nearby 93 Mile. Also worth a visit are Canim Lake, Mahood and Canim Falls.

BX Stagecoach:
Once called Barnard's Express, this original stagecoach traveled the Cariboo Trail until 1917. Visit the coach on Highway 97 in front of The Red Coach Inn in 100 Mile.
