Description

The Protected Area contains the exceptional Sikanni Chief Falls. The grandeur and power of the 30 m falls, which can be heard from quite a distance, will amaze visitors to the area. A scenic vantage point provides visitors with a perfect view as the river cascades over a steep cliff surrounded by a lush coniferous forest. Besides scenic viewing, visitors can enjoy the hiking, photography, and wildlife viewing. Do not approach the edge of the viewpoint, as there are verticle drop-offs. Sikanni Chief Falls Protected Area is located 15 km west of the Alaska Highway approximately 200 km northwest of Fort St. John. Access is via a 4x4 gravel/dirt petroleum road. Watch for industrial traffic. A 1.5 km trail from this area leads to a viewpoint adjacent to the falls. The trail is well marked and is a hiking trail only. No ATVs are allowed on the trail.

What an amazing place. Definitely nothing for beginners, very steep cliffs. Proper shoes and clothing needed, because the bugs and mosquitos are horrific. No Access to the river! All trails (left and right) take you to nice lookouts, the best one is in the middle (downhill / very steep - don't take kids) you need your balance. The effort worth it and 4WD/ SUV needed ! There some tough spots on the road, 17kms from the highway took me about 45min. Don't do when rain or wet. Not an official campground but it's permitted to stay no longer then 14 days.
