Description Of This Tour

Using a Gold Field Travel Guide map originally published in 1858, local historian David Gregory will lead you along the famous Fur Brigade Trail through Garnett Valley. Originally one of the most important native trails used by fur traders, the trail was also significant for gold seekers, cattlemen and businessmen during the Cariboo Gold Rush. The tour starts with a power point presentation at the museum and then moves on to the 50-acre Priest Camp Historic Park (the Brigade Trail’s most important encampment site), the Fur Brigade Trail Linear Park and concludes at L’Arbre Seul a look-out site, offering one of the most stunning views of Okanagan Lake, anywhere!

Please be prepared for all sorts of weather – hot, sunny, windy, cold and rain too! Dress in layers and bring all-weather clothing, sunscreen, a sun hat, sturdy hiking footwear, a snack and at least 1 litre of water for all tours and events. For longer walks and hikes you will need at least 2 litres of water, as well as snacks and a bagged lunch (if not provided). Cameras, binoculars and plant and bird field guides are optional but add to your enjoyment. Please note any additional items to bring if applicable for your tour.
