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

Farrell Canyon is definitely worth the side trip to see. From the junction of Hwy 07 & 20 in Williams Lake, head west on Hwy 20 for 46 km. Turn left ( following the signs) on a good gravel road. I was able to comfortably...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.

We visited this canyon on our drive from Williams Lake to Bella Coola after reading about it online. It is down a turning after the village of Riske Creek. The road itself is only about 14km down to the canyon, however it is a gravel...More

Farwell Canyon is hard to describe in words. Depending on the time of year, the time of day and how mobile you are - there is something for everyone that visit's. A natural amphitheatre of hoodoos where you can often view Big Horn Sheep. This...More
