Step back in time with a visit to the small community of Bridge Lake, located in a Land of Hidden Waters, part of the South Cariboo. Bridge Lake originally situated on the historic Fur Brigade Trail, dating back to early pioneer days when fur traders travelled by waterways and overland trails between. After the construction of the Cariboo Waggon Road during the 1860s, the Fur Brigade Trail was no longer required. Explore myriad lakes surrounding Bridge Lake to find one of the best fishing spots in British Columbia, where you might be the only person on the lake each day as you drop your line for rainbow trout, kokanee, char, and brook trout, or settle in for some serious ice fishing during the winter. Visit Bridge Lake year-round for trails for horseback riding, cross-country skiing, and snowmobiling, or simply take a stroll and enjoy some time in nature.
