Williams Lake River Valley
An Incredible Valley
From the west end of Williams Lake, the Williams Lake River meanders 12km along the valley floor, eventually flowing into the mighty Fraser River.
The River Valley Trail and various loop trails follow the river as it snakes through dry douglas fir forests, open grasslands and stunning geological features.
The diverse vegetation of the valley supports a healthy wildlife population including deer, beaver, the occasional bear and a variety of birds of prey, song birds and water fowl.
Ongoing efforts are currently underway to restore the natural vegetation in the upper section of the valley that has been lost as a result of past timber harvesting and agricultural activities.
