Smithers, Guest Ranches & Horseback Riding

I spent Canada Day seeing the country the way the settlers did, on horseback. The newly cut Round Lake Recreational trail network just 25 km east of Smithers are a hidden gem for horseback riders, campers and in the winter X-C skiers with a day use lodge for warming up and 13 campsites on the banks of the Bulkley River. The trails are new and never over crowded so they give you that sense of being far away from any civilization making your hike or ski feel more like an epic trek through the northern BC wilderness...
