The Quesnelle Forks Low Mobility Trails network was built in partnership between the Cariboo Regional District, the Likely and District Chamber of Commerce, Northern Development Initiative Trust, Cariboo Chilcotin Beetle Action Coalition and the provincial government through the BC Community Recreation Program.
Consisting of approximately 860m of trails, the network travels through Quesnelle Forks, offering unique vantage points of this gold rush ghost town and the junction of the Quesnel and Cariboo Rivers. The trails have a packed crushed gravel surface and gentle grade. One accessible picnic table and three benches are interspersed along the trails and the site has three accessible outhouses.
Quesnelle Forks is a beautiful historic site that features restored pioneer buildings and a historic cemetery and is the location of the earliest mining camp in the Cariboo. In 2000, Westworld Magazine dubbed Quesnelle Forks one of the “10 Best Picnic Areas in British Columbia”. The site also features a provincial campground.
Quesnelle Forks is located about 110 km northeast of Williams Lake. From Highway 97, visitors should turn east at the Horsefly Likely Road to follow the Likely Road. Once at the community of Likely, follow Keithley Creek Road and turn onto Rosette Lake Road to access Quesnelle Forks.
Ongoing management of the site is provided by the Likely and District Chamber of Commerce.
