The pioneer trail that carried gold seekers north during the Cariboo Gold Rush still remains in many places. Built in 1861, it begins in Lillooet
, where a cairn marks the spot from which all mileages are calculated. Road houses gave their names to towns that remain today, such as 70 Mile House
, 100 Mile House
, and 108 Mile House
. The road stretched to Barkerville
, preserved today as a heritage site.
