Sikanni Chief Falls Provincial Protected Area, BC
We wanted a good hike, an off-the-beaten path place, and if there was a geocache there as well, we’d be very happy campers! Leaving our RV parked at Buckinghorse River Lodge, we drove back south to the Sikanni River Ranch Road (KM171). This 10.5 mile/16.9 km gravel, access road leads to the Sikanni Chief Falls trailhead. At the trailhead, a clearly marked trail (0.9mile/1.5km) led us down, up, down again, over blown down trees, and down again; all the while listening to the sound of roaring water. Falling 98feet, waves of water cascade down from one ledge to the next. It is Mother Nature at her strongest! So worth the over 500 foot elevation change up and down the trail! Oh, and yes, there was a geocache out there. Our experience? Perfect!
