The Gold Rush Trail Guide depicts a story – a history – shaped by nature.
The Gold Rush Trail begins at the mouth of the Fraser River in New Westminster and winds its way north to Barkerville Historic Town & Park, following the traditional Indigenous peoples’ trading routes utilized during the fur trade and expanded during the gold rushes of 1858-1862. Today’s Gold Rush Trail is an experiential corridor, a journey of stories, peoples, activities and places that we share with our visitors. Just as many adventurers did before us, travellers come seeking the riches of our region. Travelling this historic trail, you’ll have a chance to disconnect, get away from the crowds and truly connect with history, culture and nature.
