Fort St. John to Bear Flat

Drive along Highway 29 from Mile 54 of the Alaska Highway down into the Peace River Valley at Bear Flat, characterized by a set of bluffs. Continue through some of the most bountiful agricultural land in the peace country. There is a stunning viewpoint just off the Alaska Higway Mile 54 turnoff. Watch for mule deer and other wildlife in the fields and hills, and along the roadside, especially at dawn and dusk.
