With very little light pollution, star gazing is unbelievable. A photographer's heaven, with outstanding skies. The Milky Way, Orion's Belt, the Big Dipper and endless other constellations.
The Persiedes meteor shower starting in July and peaking mid August will give an evening show of up to 100 meteors an hour. August evenings relaxing on the beach at the river's edge in your chair is perfect for the night owl.
The trail system is maintained by the Bella Coola Trails Alliance, which is a collection of dedicated volunteers, working in partnership with the Recreation Branch of the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations. The Bella Coola Community Forest is one of the supporting sponsors for the Trails Alliance.
Trails are an important part of the history and heritage of the Bella Coola Valley. The Nuxalk people first developed the grease trail routes leading from the main valley to the Chilcotin Plateau for trading eulachon grease and other products with interior First nations. These trails were later used by European explorers, like Sir Alexander Mackenzie in 1793, gold seekers heading to the interior and pioneers settling the province in the 1800’s.
In addition, over the years, trails were cut into the side valleys by hunters and trappers. Logging in the valley started in the earley 1900’s and some of the trails are actually former logging skid roads that have regenerated naturally.
With one of the few boat launches on the river, take the opportunity to be immersed in the outstanding scenery. There is no better way to view this valley and all the vistas it has to offer.
Bears, eagles, deer, wolves, cougars, otters, martin, fox, weasels are at the valley bottom taking advantage of the river.
Whether using your own drift boat or pontoon boat for the adventurous or using one of the local guides, please use caution as there are some class 2 sections and the river is constantly changing it's course.
All are experienced local guide/drift/raft services.
