Look for accommodation in 100 Mile House.


Info for this point: Its origins as a settlement go back to the time when Thomas Miller owned a collection of ramshackle buildings serving the traffic of the gold rush as a resting point for travellers moving between Kamloops and Fort Alexandria. The original roadhouse, known as Bridge Creek House, burnt to the ground in 1937. Stop in at the South Cariboo Visitor Centre for an excellent self-guided tour brochure.
