Sightseeing
1. Explore the historic town of Yale. The Yale Historic Site encompasses several properties in the town of Yale. A heritage building built in the 1870’s, the ‘Creighton House’ is home to a museum, gift shop, archives and Beth Clare garden. This museum is an absolute treasure. Lots of artifacts, exhibits and photos highlighting the glorious history of the town, colony, and province. Outdoor exhibits include a ‘Tent City’, showing life during the gold rush of 1858. The exhibit tents outside are great for kids to explore. St John the Divine, built in 1863, is one of the oldest church's in BC. The church is also very interesting Rather than have all 19th century artifacts sitting in a museum, the organisers of the site have tried to recreate a flavor of the gold-rush boom town. So, there is the main house, jammed pack full of memorabilia and photographers and then outside there are tents with a barber's shop, a saloon, a jail house and the original church The Ward Tea House serves tea, coffee, cold beverages, hot lunches, sandwiches, soups and desserts and The Johnny Ward Guest House originally built as a family home in 1863 by William ‘Johnny’ H.

The walk down to the bridge is fairly easy but could be steep going back up for some and you have to cross a live train track which I can see as being a little dangerous. The original bridge was built as part of the Cariboo Wagon Trail in 1861. The bridge that exists there today was built in 1926 as the original one was destroyed by high waters in the early 1900s. As you walk across the bridge deck you can see the rushing Fraser River below your feet. There's a charm to the bridge which may have something to do with it's rich history and the fever of the gold rush which once brought many people to the area.

Spirit Caves Trail is a 4.2 kilometer moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Fraser Valley B, British Columbia, Canada that features a cave and is rated as moderate. This trail is mostly narrow with loose dirt/rocks and steep. Coming down is more challenging than going up. Some find it more challenging than they expected but the view is very rewarding though. It can take about 3 hrs to finish (including a 20 mins break at the viewpoint).

Very easy walk. Can easily do it in 20 min, but say an hour with stopping, pictures, etc. Easy for all ages but beautiful views. Seeing the engineering of the tunnels is by far the best. Fantastic for pictures and just a peaceful spot. Worth the stop, even just to stretch your legs after a long drive.

It might not look like much on the map, but this place is quite a gem. The scenery is beautiful. Because it’s located at a rest stop, there isn’t a ton of parking, so be sure to get there early. The plus side to this is that there are restrooms available. The beach area has a pretty shallow part which is great for young kids and then you can take kayaks, stand up paddle boards, or flotation devices out into the rest of the lake. It’s just a beautiful little spot to go on a sunny day to cool off. Bring a picnic and enjoy! Be sure to not leave valuables in your car. The area isn’t necessarily known for theft, but it’s wise! Also, you can hop into town for some ice cream after or head to the river for another swimming spot.

Activity
Such a fantastic experience which offers views of the Fraser canyon you are unlikely to see otherwise! The rafting experience is awesome and is for pretty much everyone! There are usually people of all ages on the raft and everyone seems to enjoy the experience. The staff and owners are both informative and amusing throughout.

The tram takes you across the Fraser River to the landing on the other side of the river where you will find a restaurant,gift shop, information centre and of course washrooms. The place is kept very well. You also have access to the bridge where you will be walking on steel grids so you will see the rapids below. Don't look down if you have a weak stomach. A very enjoyable spot to visit for 2 hours. You can sit down and have something too eat or drink while enjoying the view of the mighty Fraser River or watch the brave souls below conquer the rapids. I recommend coming here on a nice day

Self-Guided Tours: If you’re just passing through and would like to come and see the village for yourself, stop in at the Gas Bar and pick up a guide book before you walk through the Heritage Site at your leisure. You almost miss it on the #1 highway. It's on the left if going east/north, look for the Bear sign! An amazing view of tee-pee's, in an entire display of a village. See the summer lodges, smoke house, food caches, sweat lodge, earth ovens and an awe-inspiring pit house
