Alexander Mackenzie Heritage Trail


This trail, which is located on Blackwater Road past Baldy Hughes, is one of the historical Indian grease trails leading from the Central Interior to the coast. Alexander Mackenzie followed it in 1793. The heritage trail goes from the Fraser River to the Bella Coola River Valley, a distance of 347 km. The section easily walked is only a short piece of the entire route that provides view of the Blackwater River valley.

There are also old Indian trails that go downstream (eastward) from the Recreation Site by the Blackwater River which also give good views of the Blackwater River and Valley.
