Take a trip back in time
Take a road trip back to bygone days and follow the Gold Rush Trail to trace the steps of the settlers from Lillooet, Mile 0 of the 1860s Cariboo Wagon Road, to Barkerville Historic Town & Park, which is home to more than 125 heritage buildings from this era.
The 750-km (466-mi) Gold Rush Trail also overlaps the waterfall circuit, which includes Ghost Lake Falls and Matthew River Falls in Cariboo Mountains Provincial Park. Ghost Lake Falls can be seen from the road at the campsite and Matthew River Falls are a short but steep walk from the first set of picturesque waterfalls. Visit the other four waterfalls on the trail (Mehatl Falls, Deception Falls, Horsefly Falls, and Moffat Falls) for short strolls and challenging hikes to see nature at its most powerful.
