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.

The Farwell Canyon area really is a must-see when you're visiting Williams Lake. It's off the beaten track and not very well identified, but if you plan on most of day the variety of scenery is remarkable, from the hoodoos and long-abandoned ranch in the...More
