Ancient Forest (East)

The watershed of the upper Fraser River has given rise to a unique inland wet-temperate rainforest; a forest ecosystem that combines attributes of both the coastal wet-temperate rainforests of British Columbia and adjacent boreal forests of Alberta and the far north.

The Ancient Forest Trail on the south side of Highway 16 near Slim Creek provides an opportunity to view an Antique Forest stand within BC's inland rainforest. The trailhead, located 113 km east of Prince George (6.6 km west of the Slim Creek rest area), is marked by a large sign on the right hand side of the highway (heading east) marked "Ancient Forest". Pull into the trailhead parking lot and spend an hour or two walking through one of BC's best kept secrets. The trail is an easy-moderate hike marked with interpretative signage, and is home to a beautiful waterfall.
