Winding its way through the heart of Fort St. James is a new journey of discovery. The trail takes visitors from the historic park on a meandering stroll through the village and the cottonwood wharf to the Russ Baker memorial and a beautiful view from the edge of a cliff looking down Stuart Lake. Ten interpretive panels along the way tell the stories of the Carrier First Nation, Simon Fraser and Chief Kw’eh. You will learn about salmon and sturgeon, the early bush pilots and the trails of yesterday that inter-connected New Caledonia.
This fully accessible self-guided walk is a great day out for visitors of all ages and abilities. This project won a 2012 Interpretation Canada Gold Award in the “Non-Personalized Program” category.
4.5km round trip.
