Williams Lake and the surrounding area is full of great hiking trails, many within close proximity of the city.
The 24 km return Williams Lake River Valley Trail is well maintained and meanders from the Comer Street entrance parking lot all the way to the Fraser River.
Following the scenic valley, the trail is great for walking, jogging, biking, skiing, and snowshoeing. Easy access makes it a great option for sightseeing and exercise.
For the more adventurous or wilderness hiker there are many developed trails for day and overnight hikes into the beautiful mountains and lakes of the Cariboo, Chilcotin and Coast.
Many of the local mountain bike trails also make great hiking trails, providing easy access into nearby forests.
