Come away for a refreshing Wilderness Adventure located in the beautiful Chilcotin and Coast Mountain Ranges of British Columbia.
Hikes take place on one of our many trails based out of our Lodge. The trails vary from lakeside walks to high mountain trails where you can enjoy the splendor of the South Chilcotin. They are suitable for beginners to seasoned hikers. Hikers have the opportunity to return to the ranch after a short hike, pack a lunch for a day hike, or camp out overnight.
