Anahim Lake and the surrounding area attract hikers from around the world to experience pristine wilderness and incredible views of the Coastal Mountain Range.
The Alexander Mackenzie/Nuxalk-Carrier Grease Trail is one of the most famous hiking routes in the Anahim Lake area. The area is part of a geographically diverse corridor, which ranges from glaciated summits to rolling grasslands, and wetlands to dry alpine forest.
The intense reds, yellows, and lavenders of the Coastal Mountain Range make the Rainbow Range Trail an unforgettable hike. The trail is located along the 500km/300mi Anahim Volcanic Belt.
The Sugar Camp Trail is an original pack trail. Ending at the Atnarko Tote Road in the Bella Coola Valley, the route makes for a long day and really should be attempted with a guide.
