Lillooet, BCAt one time Lillooet was the largest settlement in British Columbia. It's importance is evident in that the Mile "0" Cairn that marks the beginning of the famous Cariboo Trail is placed in Lillooet. Miners and traders used this route to the British Columbia interior and it was vitally important during the Cariboo Gold Rush. The cairn was used as a measure for all the mile posts to the north; 83 Mile, 100 Mile House, 150 Mile House are examples where communities have grown up along the Gold Rush Trail.

Lillooet it situated on the banks of BC's mighty Fraser River, affording visitors a wonderful display of nature's beauty. Those who arrive from the south either by rail or road are privy to some of BC's most awe inspiring sights - everything from roaring river canyons to majestic mountains.
