Cariboo Hwy, Gold Rush Trail, Clinton, Photo Destination BC Michael Bednar

Loon Lake supports a vibrant fishing industry including excellent rainbow trout in this deep long lake. Hiking, bird and wildlife watching in a coniferous forest mixed with small stands of deciduous growth, as well as plenty of watersports offer an abundance of outdoor activities.

Location

Located east and north of Clinton in the Cariboo area of the Cariboo Chilcotin Coast region, 48 km (30 mi) south on Hwy 97 and north east on Loon Lake Road.

Step Back in Time

Indigenous people of the region have fished, hunted and gathered along the valley lake shores for generations. Fur traders descended upon the area forging trade routes for the Hudson’s Bay Company across the Bonaparte Plateau and into surrounding rich watersheds, which was followed closely by the gold rush. At the junction of Hwy 97, the Gold Rush Trail, and Loon Lake Road you will see a heritage barn and blacksmith shop; this was a stop for the BX express during the gold rush as travellers made their way from Ashcroft up the Cariboo Waggon road to strike it rich.
