A few days ago myself and a few of my friends and family headed up the Telkwa Pass ATVing, The pass is an awesome ride (or drive) and you get to see such amazing scenery! You can reach all the way from Telkwa BC to Terrace BC on this outstanding trail; I've even heard stories about some of those intense outdoors people waking up for out of town work hours early and taking the pass instead of the highway! That's what i call dedication!
Along the way you get to see multiple lakes and streams; such as Top Lake, Mooseskin Johnny Lake, Sinclare Creek, Tom George Creek and many many others. As well as the water ways you get the chance to see wild life, have a camp fire at Top Lake, and as always on an ATVing trip you are promised to get dirty!
The highlight of the trip for me (aside from getting out in the valley with friends) was once we got to Top Lake we parked the ATVs for a while and had a camp fire complete with hot dogs and marshmallows. After we we're all full and ready to ride again we hoped back on the machines and had some good ol' fun in the water (rubber boots & rain pants are a personal recommendation).
The trip is awesome and we're already planning another trip in a few weeks, hope to see people up there! Happy riding!!
For more specific directions the trail is a very well known area in the Smithers & Telkwa area so feel free to stop and ask on your way through!
