It’s easy to snowshoe in the Cariboo Chilcotin Coast – head out into the backcountry, pick one of many trails at The Hills Health Ranch or visit the Wells-Barkerville area.

Gold rush history, snowy scenery and bluebird skies make this region ideal for all levels of snowshoeing.

Snowshoeing in Wells-Barkerville

Snowshoers can take advantage of a vast network of more than 100km/62mi of formal trails, in addition to open backcountry, in the Wells-Barkerville area.

Snowshoe the historic Cariboo Wagon Road, with 22km/13.7mi running from Stanley, west of Wells, through to Barkerville Historic Town, or explore trails that touch on the area’s mining days, such as the 1861 Pack Trail. In Barkerville, a former gold-rush boomtown, wander among the 125 restored heritage buildings – the main street is plowed and perfect for snowshoeing. All trails are located off Highway 26, within a few minutes of Wells.
