It is a beautiful area, although we wanted to hike in but found it poorly marked. Finally we did find a place to hike in but it was after we had made a couple of stops.

It's cool, to experience and weather. I was there in September and again in October, and it was cold both times, which is pretty typical that time of year. Trail system is not marked or mapped well on-site, and with no cell service your mobile...More

Approx 1 hour drive from Williams Lake (40 mins to Riske Creek and 20 mins on unpaved road towards Gang Ranch) and 30-45 mins hike one way but it is all worth the drive and the hike. Autumn leaves colour and the greenish river adds...More

Farwell Canyon is stunningly beautiful. Even the drive to the canyon is well worth it. It is definitely worth traveling off of Hwy 20 to visit this place. The views are very impressive. The road is drivable using a car, no 4x4 vehicle is necessary....More

It is worth the extra 2-3 hours spent detouring off Highway 20 past several lakes and creeks, in to the canyon. The roads are gravel, but in good shape for a strudy SUV.

The trip from Quesnel was over a 2 hour drive but worth while. We parked at the 16 Km marker and used the well beaten path for a one hour casual hike through three ravines, to the sand dune. Nice views and mix of landscapes.

I just drove out there today. Gravel road was graded and nice. Wide to. That's not a problem. Where we park is on private land and we hike to the sand dunes. I believe it is on native land. So getting there isn't a problem... More
