Clinton is located on Highway 97, once the "junction" of Cariboo Trail and Cariboo Wagon Road, which guided prospectors north to the gold fields.

Rich in both natural setting and cultural history, Clinton offers amazing hiking, fishing, and heritage site touring. Explore such geological wonders as chasms (deep clefts in the earth's surface) and hoodoos (spires of sedimentary rock); get some dust on those cowboy boots at a working guest ranch; or in winter, strap on cross-country skis and discover Clinton's backcountry.

Summer Activities

70 Mile House and Big Bar Provincial Park are, according to residents, incredible bird watching locales, especially along Big Bar's 4km/2.5mi wetland hiking trail. Big Bar Lake is a great spot to turn a day of fishing into a night of lakeside camping. Marble Range Provincial Park provides great wilderness treks for advanced hikers near bighorn sheep and mule deer protected territory.
