A multi-day hike in the South Chilcotins
Dreaming of a multi-day hike in the South Chilcotin mountains but not sure what to expect?
Caroline Helbig’s blog, ‘Writes of Passage’ explores a 7 hike in the South Chilcotin mountains. The group of 9 friends ventured on an epic hike that took them through flower filled meadows and over alpine passes, all while watching out for the abundant wildlife that call the South Chilcotin Mountains home. The adventure began with a floatplane drop to Lorna Lake and from here the group hiked through some of the most beautiful terrain in BC.
“It was epic! For seven days, our group backpacked through the untrammelled wilderness of British Columbia’s South Chilcotin Mountains Provincial Park. This park has an incredible diversity of landscapes—snowy peaks, glacial lakes and flower-filled meadows all connected by over 200 km of wilderness trails. No need to worry about social distancing. We met only two other hiking groups during our week’s stay. It was rough going at times, but the scenic rewards and sense of accomplishment far outweighed the discomforts.” (Helbig, 2020).
