Tucked away within the mountains surrounding Lillooet lie some of BC's most beautiful hiking trails. Many of the trails provide access to either backcountry cabins, campsites and/or alpine lakes that have been stocked for fishing.

All hikers are encouraged to hike in groups and to be prepared for possible encounters with wildlife. Highway 99 south of Lillooet is home to some of the most beautiful and easily accessible alpine hiking areas in BC.  Be sure to carry pleanty of drinking water, especially in the summer months.
